Nicely done! Unusual vehicle, historic passenger station, and favorable lighting. It's damn uncommon to see a Budd RDC outside of a museum in 2019, let alone rolling via its own power, let alone earning its keep doing anything other than giving tourists a ride. The horn solo was surprisingly impressive for such a modest-sized train - "the mouse that roared". ;)

Just as an aside this RDC has different horns in each end!
