Very cool! But how can he chase a train and not video the engines (or did I miss that?)?

Trains Mag had an article about the sugar cane trains a while back. Interesting operation.

If he did video the locomotives, didn't make the cut. The dude's not a railfan so probably isn't as concerned with the locos as he is for the cars he was flying above.

Yeah, you can tell the guy isn't a railfan. US Sugar has their own railroad to cover hundreds of thousands of acres of sugar cane fields in south central Florida. The main sugar plant is in Clewiston, where they process the sugar and package it under dozens of different brands, including house brands of major grocery chains.
