That sort of horn use is required when passing MW equipment where people might be working.

Nice with the K5LL horn on the SD70ACE in your first sequence.

Nice horn show with all the work equipment out there. I'm sure the work crew was gone with the full speed of the trains.

The videos are terrific. but ...

I have a question. Isn't there a simple, cheap sort of microphone cover for recorders that screens out wind noise?

Thanks,

Yes, I have one however on this day, there was no wind in the forecast.. Then even on a clear, no wind day, it doesn't sound as good as what the Canon comes with built-in.
