That's great, thanks. I thought they looked like full HD. Do you have an external mic - the sound's very clear? I have a 10 year old Canon camcorder and i'm thinking of replacing it - i've been really happy with it so would be happy to go Canon again but i'm agonising over whether to try a 4k one from Panasonic....i'm not in a major hurry though! 

Thanks again and keep up the good work - i'm very envious of your location!

I have an External Mic however I find the Canon's quality seems to be better than the External Mic.  These were all taken without the External Mic.

Very NICE series Christina! Always enjoy your fast freight videos. Liked the cameo airplane action in your first video. Happy Easter to you and your family.

Not sure to be honest, see the stack trains all the time out here like that.

> On the ( HILL) the old SP line etc.?

East of Maricopa, AZ we go to the Anderson Rd Crossing, which is next to the Control Point "Bon" SP 906.  Here is the location: (Link) Bon SP 906
South side of the Gila Subdivision Main Line (Sunset Route).

Thanks for the comment, I am not sure the route after it leaves Arizona.  This was the first time I saw this Symbol on the Sunset Route.

Thanks Brian!  I like to get as much desert and train as possible since we don't have much scenery out here in the Arizona Desert along the Sunset Route.

The new Spring Edition of SPH&TS' TRAINLINE has a great article and map of the SP's South Route through New Mexco wihta  great map as it used to be.

Also, as an aside, a great story on my present Hometown, Whittier, CA.
