That was after they pulled out of SS enroute to the siding to run around

Right, but in the video the engine is long hood forward with a loaded centerbeam.

Chris, the locomotive was long hood forward all the way from Schellville, they shoved the empty centerbeam into SS, tied down in SS, the loco was still long hood forward at this point, once it was loaded a few days later, they pulled the train out, and ran up to the siding at the Windsor Depot, where the line ends, ran around, and headed back to Schellville short hood forward.

How is it that the engine is long hood forward at 1:45, but the rest of the video it's short hood forward?  I'm assuming they didn't deliver the centerbeam loaded...

Gerald M. Best would be proud of this video. as would David Morgan along with both Lucius Beebe and his "friend/companion" Charles Clegg. None of the above could have made this moving image at the same period of time that you did. Congrats!!   Out of possible 100 score you achieved a remarkable 97.4 which is a fairly "passing" grade  though the train is not passing another train on grade.

Good shooting.

Scott, Great video, Engineer forgot to change ditch light from forward to reverse position until later in video.

Thanks! It was to throw a switch

Another fabulous video!

In the video at exactly 05:00 the train comes to a complete stop for the briefest of moments.  Was this stop needed to throw a switch or to wait for crossing signal activation?

 

A respectable 11 cars in the final scene.
