Re: CSXT Plymouth Subdivision Never Seen Before Video Footag

While there has been quite a number of new trip videos posted since the last time there was any mention of them here on railroadfan, we have been able to tell by the large amount of views that many have been seeing them.

Re: CSXT Plymouth Subdivision Never Seen Before Video Footag

Regarding what was said above with city names popping up on the videos as each segment starts - I would love to make that happen! Great idea. I just am not talented enough in this area to make it work. In other words, plain and simple, I don't know how to do it. If anyone out there can give me any t...
