Nice Video, thanks for sharing!😎

The Sunset Ltd. was my first Train ride as a baby ( with my mom) from Alpine,Tx to LA on the way to visit my dad before he went to the Pacific during WW II.

As we were slowed down on the approach to the Tucson station I opened the vestibule door window so I wasn't shooting through the glass.

At 1:59 I had my camera out the window.

At 2:06 we passed 3 UP crewmen.

I panned the camera as I went by and 2 of the 3 guys waved.

Some time after we left the Tucson station the TA-SC told me that I should not open the window again.  

Busted !!!!!!!!!  :blush:

One of those 3 guys had radioed the train crew.
