IMO, crappy video but thanks for your efforts.

Took my Grinch pill this morning.

Nice, I see you were able to get the GLC as well! I don't see them very often when I'm over there.

I saw headlights a couple times and signal lights, that's about it. If you're going to film at night, highly suggest going to a nicely lit spot, like under a street light so we can see the train. Also ditch that 30 second opening. A simple 5 second overlay of your name on the actual video is ok.

That's the one thing I was surprise by going to Durand would have thought it'd be better lit
