This afternoon I experienced something new and exciting: a highballing, intermodal freight screaming through a passenger station on the platform side a few feet from me. I've seen videos like this before but it has to be experienced. This particular mixed-intermodal train blasts through the Woodbridge, VA VRE station. What's unique is that most of the other freights today are on the opposite track.
Earlier this afternoon I was pondering the wind screens on the passenger platform. Now I know why they are here. I had no idea how strong the wind wake is from these trains, hence the shaky camera.
