Music and Trains

Jerry Jeff Walker was the headline musical act at the Texas Reds Steak and Grape Festival in downtown Bryan on June 21. JJW came on at 9pm and in a few minutes he got some competition from Union Pacific.





You'll see two trains in the video running fairly close together. A third came later and met a northbound (these are all southbound) on the double track at Bryan. I boosted the brightness a bit in post processing to help seeing what is going on.

If you look real close on the first train, you will see a man run right across the tracks in front of the train ... and in front of a group of police officers. They grabbed the guy and tried to talk some sense into him.

Watch the conductor on the second train. He is taking in the sights and sounds and waving back at the crowd.
