Default WSOR Reedsburg Sub Chase

This is from July of 2006. We went from Dane Wisconsin to Merrimac Wisconsin, about a 15 mile span. It wouldnt be a trip for most, but since I'm from Illinois, I decided to post this. I'll let the video do the talking.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the video, I really enjoyed it!

Those wig-wag signals are very cool!

I liked the shot with the truck waiting at the crossing and it being dwarfed by the train! The bridge scene was also excellent!

There is a short line that runs through my town, the Finger Lakes Railroad. It would be really fun to chase it for a day and put together a video like this!

Golden spike- Thanks for all of your kind words! I would really encourage you to follow the local shortline! I would love to see videos. Shortlines are really fun to railfan.

Chris- Thanks to you also for the compliments! Yeah, I was really suprised at how well the vids came out! As for it looking professional, there is really not that much to it. That being said, I credit the creators of Windows Movie Maker big time! Their easy to use program really helped me out. I havent even been using it for a week! I only wish that the quality was a little better!

Thanks again guys!
-Adam

That was an awesome video man!

What kind of unit was pulling the train? It looked like an SD40 on an SD35 frame.

Thanks! That is actually an SD20. They were built for the Illinois Central from SD24s (??) I think. They were coined the nickname "Skunks"

A very nice video Adam. I've railfanned the Reedsburg sub from start to finish a few times but usually I just do photos. I do have a little video of the sub but not much, and so the video of yours is neat to see.

You would be correct, too, Adam, that these particular SD20's were rebuilt by the IC from SD24s. The IC did have a few that they had rebuilt from SD35s though, but they look slightly different. The nickname Skunks was given to them because of their black IC paint scheme with thin white stripes that made them look a little bit like skunks. Of course, they spit oil out of the stack like a skunk spits it's offending odor too, so there's another similarity for you.....
