On the last Saturday of March 2011, I ventured to Woodbourne, nothing too special, but the trains were. I left with 10 trains on this day, not bad for a Saturday.

A huge Q418-26 now emerges eastbound out of Woodbourne Yard with 582 and 5122, with another friendly crew on board. This train was huge, and moving really slow, so obviously the whole train wasn't filmed. Note how it stopped near the end too, not sure why that happened.
