At long last, the 98%-finished video of our trip in April 2012 on Private Car NYC-3, from NYC Penn Station to Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Chicago, and back to New York. There were eight of us and also the car owner, Lovett Smith, a source of great knowledge, stories, and history. (He was also the one to deal with Amtrak when questions came up.) He has rail friends in every city! This cut is heavy on the trains and the station activity, made necessary by the fact that most of us on board are railfan types. If you get bored by the sequences of backing into New Orleans and Chicago (you should have seen them before I cut them down), you will have to skip forward! But you will like the New Orleans music, which was very hard to cut out, despite some jumpy cuts and bouncy camera work. (Hey, it's my first feature-length video.) I'll try for a very short version soon, but don't wait up for it. Apology to non-participants for all the still photos up front! I left out the dinner-table sequences; I think you had to be there. Will get them to my fellow travelers sometime. Meanwhile, it was a wonderful and memorable trip in a car that was such fun to be traveling in. Thank you for the great times!
