Nice video as always !*brav*! !!*ok*!!
I am interested in that logo in the red NS lead engine, but I could not read it. What is it?

I love that old route Ohio Steel 2. I have been doing some research lately and the tracks from Uhrichsville to Dover and to Massillon were owned (and ran) by Chessie System (mostly C&O).

Thanks, I'm surprised you didn't say anything about the vibrations. *!lol!*

The camera shack effect, is that just editing?

Yup, I tried to simulate the vibrations depend on the speed of the train, and also how far the camera was from the track. There is also a drone shot that I added a bit of movement to.

The effects look good, too bad they are not in the game itself.

As a professional videographer, I love the creativity here. The whole video looks very realistic - the shake is perfectly done, very believable.

I have to ask though, where'd you get all the photoreal boxcars? Your custom repaints? Only ones I can find are Jessie James' (and my own of course).

Jessies' one's most definitely. I think a few are from here as well.

I believe most of the Ohio Steel rails were once Baltimore & Ohio territory, at least it was when I was a kid.... *!lol!* I think Chessie took it over for a while, now I am not too sure who owns and controls what in town now days as one rarely sees any equipment running on the track that is left. Most of the Republic Steel mill tracks in Massillon are gone, its now a fracking pipe storage facility.

My information is from life experience as I live in the area. The old B&O freight station was just north of the southern most road viaduct(Tremont Ave.) in Massillon. We use to hop freights there when I was a kid to catch rides to Canal Fulton and Dover. Here's a FaceBook page that deals with the local railroad history: https://www.facebook.com/groups/401148226933469/ maybe this will help with the history.

You probably are right. And I may too (though my point refers only to Google research).
Chessie System was a holding of three main RR companies including B&O and a few smaller carriers. At some time before B&O was a standalone RR, Chessie System colors must have been running along that line.

Trying not to be condescending, I thought Baltimore & Ohio Railroad was established in 1827, like the first ever American railroad, not sure what you mean by stand alone. The Chessie system was established in 1869, I am either misunderstanding or your facts are wrong. I did notice your map is dated in either 1976 or 1978(too small to see accurately), and the legend shows black in the area of the Ohio Steel 2, which made it B&O territory at the time. Oh yah, Chessie ran there, but not for long. I guess Google can't always be accurate.

Yep, red and silver, have seen them on the system, but rarely. The name escaped me in my earlier post. Thanks for the memory jag.
