Cotton Belt GP20E in 1993 – Video

October 16, 2010

One of my first attempts at videotaping a train. The camera was a Sony Hi-8 model. It was infamous for losing focus with engine headlights, especially if zoomed in at all. At least I didn’t have to deal with ditch lights with that camera.

Hence, I had to shoot everything fairly wide. But to have had today’s grade of equipment back in the day….

Cotton Belt GP20E 4152 leads a long Strang-Englewood chemical train near MP 1.5 of the Strang sub in May of 1993. This is just south of Englewood Yard.

Note the graffiti-free freight cars. Good times…
