Remarks: Southern Pacific Daylight 4449 passes the coaling tower at Michigan City after connecting back on to her train. The 4-8-4 steamer left Chicago during the night and spent the night in Michigan City until past 12 noon when the Amtrak arrived with her train. Bridge weight issues caused the steamer to take a different route out of Chicago.
Standing room only! I can't believe there was just the *one* guy in front of you.

Nice sequence, Kent. Good angle, rock solid so I assume it was on a tripod. I disagree on the going-away shot. I think it's interesting to see railfans smiling and doing their craft. I applaud your editing technique, and kudos on panning around to get the shot of the Skytop on the end. And isn't there always a guy in a red shirt? Has been at least since 1975! Keep up the good work!
