I was hoping for a scene of 1322 highballing into a sunset, but I'm all good with what I got lol

I like the parting shot. Nice touch to a cool little loco's farewell.

Thank you Richard! All of the footage was shot with Canon cameras. The high sound quality is one of the biggest reasons I've been loyal to Canon for the past 5 years almost for my videos. Looking back at it, I somehow managed to get a lot more high-throttle sound clips of 1322 than I had previously thought. I guess the NWP got their money's worth out of it.

Beautifully done Andrew! I especially enjoyed seeing each pass complete to the end of the train and the traffic signals. And then there is the sound. I grew up listening to Geeps and SD's. Thank you for the good sound quality. And for showing the unit is something other than sunshine!

Bravo Andrew! All great stuff, especially the shots around Behrens; love that ex P&SR interurban trackage!

Thanks Parker. I was really happy with the way it came out as well. It was long enough to occupy the entire frame, while short enough to allow the entire train to be in the frame. Lucky choice of angle I guess.
