Great video, perfect song too. Just like my day sunday. Open for one launch, roll back, shut down, two maintence guys on track all day.

I wish he could have showed us the whole video of the roll back, only because I have never seen one.

Unfortunately, I started rolling tape just as the train failed to crest the hill...I couldn't have started any earlier, and I couldn't see it in the viewfinder...notice that the camera outruns the train down the hill. You got all of it that was good video. :)

To see a whole rollback...including reverse POV...go to www.guidetothepoint.com and click the news link to the CBS Morning News on the left-edge of the page. They have complete video of that story, which included a rollback.

I can't find the CBS Morning News link on that site. Is there another name for it? I would just watch the vid on the site, but Quicktime 6 won't install properly on my pc. Any help?
