I know you have posted this before, but how wide is the "broad gauge" and how narrow is the "narrow gauge?  Great pictures and video!

Great catch sir !!! That was one heck of a long train too.
As I was watching it go by in the video something seemed funny and that's when I realized it wasa "narrow" gauge train which took almost all of the video for me to catch !!! :):):)
Thank you for sharing this with us !!! :):):)
