Remarks: Watch as a local crew cranks up their 2 Southern engines preparing for the day's work. Then they head off into the yard to pick up their train. The next shot shows the local freight running by the Amtrak station headed back to Hayne Yard. The final shot shows the crew back at Hayne Yard moving a few engines around the engine facility, and their two engines waiting to be serviced for their next assignment.
Greg personally I think this one is the best yet. I like how you integrated several shots if the same engines. The cranking up of the set at the begining of the video is exceptional. Hearing the ca-chug of the GE and the nervous whine of the EMD is exceptional with the icing on the cake bineg they are wearing tuxedo black. Keep them comong Greg good job!

Great bit of history! I'm sure those units are long gone.

Let's not forget: The B30-7A1 was but a puppy at the time compared with its veteran GP30 companion.
Thanks Greg for showing the every day side of rairoading. How bout that old car and pickup. It's only been 19 years ago. but they seem so much older. The conductor was moving slow, but I've been to Spartanburg in July and it can get a bit hot. Great work.
