Almost looks like you shrunk yourself (and your camera) and were taking video from a model railroad!

What is really interesting to see, is a long freight train going around it, where the locomotive goes over or under it's own train.... :cool:

I’ve seen videos of that (not at Tehachapi, though) and it’s pretty disorienting.
