This trip was an overnight turn trip from Milwaukee, WI to San Antonio, TX aboard the Texas Eagle in a roomette and bedroom. Although I spent the day after I returned making detailed notes, I lost them in a hard drive crash.


Since my notes are gone, here is day 1 in video: Milwaukee, WI to St. Louis, MO





Stay tuned for day 2 - Marshal, TX to San Antonio, TX.

(I'll start working on it tonight, should be done in a couple of weeks - makes me feel like a real film studio the longer the "post production" takes). :)

P.S. It's not shown in the video, but it was nice meeting MistyORL by the rail fan window that day!

Thanks for a great video. Looking forward to the next report.

Sorry about losing the hard disk.

Nice video. Your room was on the "wrong" side for you to wave as you went by my house - about 10 minutes south of SPI, in the middle of all those corn fields. :giggle:

Nice video. You had one small mistake in the film. On the Hiawatha you were in an Amfleet I coach, not an Amfleet II
