It was pure dumb luck that I caught this private rail car traveling through Normal Illinois last night. Had no clue Hollywood Beach would be rolling through. I was in town for an electric car event. Staying close enough to Amtrak station to do some railfanning.
I’d venture a guess car was heading to 2019 American Association of Private Railroad Car Owners Inc. – AAPRCO convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Saw a few waves – but others I didn’t see until viewing recording on desktop.
I’ve never had a video camera with a viewfinder that I can see well in bright light. Back to using old model – new one has either been lost or got stolen when we purchased bikes earlier in year.
