So, I am driving last night and what do I stumble upon?  A train.  I am heading in the wrong direction so I pull a u-turn as quick as I can and race to the only crossing where I may have a chance.  I get set up just in the nick of time.  My goal is to be on the tracks when the train comes so I can face the engine head on.  As you can see from the video I was close, but not close enough.  One day.

Anyway, this one is more to what I would like to get.  And it has the 'train from afar sky shot' at the end.  Enjoy!

I apologize, this video has been removed at the request of youtube.

Great to see it snake into the distance.  How many cars on this one?

L O N G trains and L O N G cars. Those cars look twice as long as regular cars.

Perfect timing! I have a GS mission saved for the tracks. Just waiting to catch a train in the perfect spot.

Actually the ones running on this line are fairly short right now.  There is a problem with the tracks due to frost and they are running short trains at a slower speed.

A lot of them are auto carriers  - I think it is just the angle of the camera.  They are normal length cars.

Try this...  Might help you pinpoint when a train will be coming...
Railroad Radio

Or go old school and get a real scanner.  I'm sure you can find your local rail frequencies somewhere.

Although the source and music are okay, youtube for some reason is not.  So instead of the hassle, I will take it down and replace it with different music.
