I liked the Video also. Doubleheaded RS1 make a nice pair. All my viedos come out yellow and fuzzy. I put in Halogen spot lights and it helps but viedos still messed up.
* I have been placeing photos of my equipment in a few threads here. More to see if you look.

Thanks Frank. I have seen your fleet on the other thread. Nice to see you post an Alco on this thread. The fuzzy situation on the videos are a result of auto focus where the camera searches for a focal point. Any foreground object usually effects the trains focus and the camera has to search for focus.. Sometimes there is a depth of field issue if you zoom in. The best thing to do is to set the focus manually and keep the camera fixed for the run by. Use as wide an angle as possible. The white balance maybe difficult to adjust if your lights give off a yellow hue.

The one on the right is a very interesting scheme. Was it used for a particular premium passenger train?

Frank: It is fixed. I had to republish as my daughter deleted it from her profile. Put it in the wrong Account. Sorry about that
