    This is a really good video of the Challenger; photography is exceptional. I do have one question I wish someone would explain. The diesel running behind the last water tender seems to be running on out of round wheels. In many of the shots it is seen bouncing up and down. None of the cars seem to be doing this.

    The 3985’s trip from Cheyenne to Saint Paul was covered very well by the camera teams. Lots of good pacing shots. Only the 3985 was pulling a short train most of the way, & was not working much at all. Some great start up shots tho. Also a cab tour. Being a die hard 3985 fan, I have watched it 2 times, and I reccomend it. You will enjoy it.
