Great video Marshall. I love the zoom affect with the cars along the street.

No ditch lights on!

Unbelievable the amount of cross traffic, cars and bikes, that turn in front of the engine and cut across.

Somebody's dog narrowly escaped becoming hamburg at the 00:27 mark. :-( Still, it's always neat to see street running... it's like watching a parade of elephants walk through an ant farm.

The dog,the cars,the SP wow that is a great street running video from Indiana!

Great, I was intrigued by what was going to happen as the train approached the traffic lights at the 2' mark.

You got to love it........

Great video, Marshall. That has to be an engineers' nightmare!

Most times in "street running" shots, the train is only a few cars long...this was a fairly long train. I too thought the amount of cross traffic was funny especially the dalmation crossing at one point.

I wish folks would be more careful of the trains and not make the crews nervous On the other hand the air horns the gurling of the locos and the creaking freight cars Man thats music

To all those decrying people for 'narrowly' missing death.... The photographer has an incredibly long lens on his video camera, and long zoom down a narrow pathway tends to compress depth, as well as expand depth of field. The people and cars that looked like they were pulling in front of the oncoming train were in actual fact nowhere near the train.

Great footage! Is this line still in service? I've read that railroads are working on eliminating street running as much as possible due to the high liability issues.

Posted by Joshua Bauer on June 21, 2008

Nice video, I love to see trains taking advantage of extra room used for median on the roadways.

Posted by on June 23, 2008

Incredible! Not only do you catch an amazing railroad feat! You caught a SP locomotive unpatched!

Posted by L Holt on July 21, 2008

Nicely done. Interesting how much traffic seems to cut it close with the moving train.

Posted by cross88 on August 1, 2008

I live rather close to this site. Many derailments on this approach to the bridge over the Ohio River.

Hey, he ran all those stopsigns! Great video!

Posted by railattach on March 9, 2009

This is wonderful. Street railroads are not common; however, I like this video. Thanks!!

Posted by Joel Podlaski on January 1, 2010

That location must be a nightmare for photographers. Between pedestrians, vehicles, and limited space, you don't have much of a chance to get a good shot. Great street running video by the way!

Posted by KJ40-2 on March 9, 2010

CSX? Looks like UP, huh?

Posted by cruzMOKS on December 16, 2010

Telephoto effect makes it more fun. Busy road, I wonder how many wrecks have happened.

Posted by railfreak on November 16, 2012

amazing video which I have never seen

I lived in Jeff in the 50s, but remember consists running down a New Albany street in that time frame. If I remember correct it was a very wide street and the traffic signals were on top of a post on the street corner and would operate green in the trains favor. Don K. sunny Florida
