    Wow. Nice chase! I think my favorite part is the overhead view of that train, about 13:30.

    Aaron, after studying your video, it appears that the train was running faster than 25 mph, especially at the Hwy 53 and Big Biloxi crossings. I'm wondering if the line has now been certified for Class 4 and 49 mph? Did you notice this or was that only a function of the video angle?

    Also, thanks for capturing all the action up in Hattiesburg. The backing and interlocking moves were very interesting with the radio traffic.

    Thank you guys! In some spots the train was doing about 30 maybe 35 mph at Hwy 53 he had to be doing at least about 30 mph but most of the shots he was doing 25. Now the odd thing was about this chase through Wiggins, MS he was doing 5 mph i'm not sure why maybe a slow order? I'm not sure. Glad you guys enjoyed the video =D
