    I like it. I've ridden this train in the past five years but never really heard all the history explained this well. I remember talking to the engineer and he said he once ran that very same engine in Chicago when it was new! I thought that was pretty cool. I remember seeing the electric fence that warned of rock slides and got some shots of that.

    I do think the ending could be a little more fleshed out, maybe by adding some shots of people getting on/off the train, shots of the depot, maybe talking a little more about the current operation. Certainly good enough as is though. Let's move this thing along quickly.

    Informative with the vintage photo a nice touch. I'd say post as is.

    Interesting piece - particularly the shots from deep inside the gorge. I vote to post.
