Kevin Plays With Trains

Something I couldn't post earlier because the upload speed from this connection is awful and it took about two hours to upload a 1-minute video is footage that Lisa shot of me operating a locomotive at the Colorado Railroad Museum. Well, not really; it's their diesel switcher simulator, built into an actual locomotive. I will say that it does sound pretty realistic. It wasn't until I'd finished my turn that I realized just how many operating mistakes I'd made, but I did give a more-or-less correct grade crossing signal (long-long-short-long) and a "train about to move forward" (short-short) signal.
