Headed home from Brewster, NY, while waiting for the 9:16 train to Grand Central, the crossing gates at the end of the platform activated at an odd time. Two northbound trains had just arrived and departed within the previous hour, so what could the third one be? Spotting red markers, I thought 'Diesel'...and then 'Out of the Ordinary', followed quickly by "That's why you carry a camera with you at all times". I missed the first blast of the horn, but got the rest.

And right as I hit the stop button on the camera, the gates activated again, but this time it was for the approaching 9:16 train.

So this is the result--Metro-North BL20 #127 strolls through Brewster station late one night, headed up to Southeast, or possibly points farther north. Who knows--it's something else to put up, and another chance to diddle with video settings in an effort to get something that doesn't require a high-powered PC to play smoothly*.
