      Video clip of a Conrail nighttime run out of Lansdale from June 1991. They start out shifting the old yard which is now the parking lot, then take a couple tank cars down the main on what I believe is a Warminster run. It was shot with a GE VHS from 1988.

      As a comparison, here is a CSX C746 and PNRR L160 from this week, on the return four engines and one box car shot with a Panasonic FZ8 still camera in movie mode, look at the difference in quality.

        Also, most of the Panasonic Lumix FZ(##) cameras seem to be the best "bang for the buck" in performance.
        I'm currently using an FZ35. It's not the same as an SLR, but it'll do for now. 


        Thanks for posting that video link.  MEH
