Interesting break down Ed. How does that chart relate in numbers? Obviously the US has the most, but how many views in Germany? And can you tell if these views are from different viewers or just the times watched?

Attached is the same chart with the number of viewers (assumed to be unique) who watched 3 seconds or more of the video.
Total reach (number of views) of the "Blow Down" video is now at 104,039.

Since the "Blow Down" video went live on 5/6/2021, we've gained 700 new followers.

By way of comparison, here is the updated list of the 5 most liked railroad attractions in northern New England, according to Facebook:
#52,680 - Clark's Trained Bears (aka Clark's Trading Post) [1% increase]
#31,531 - Conway Scenic Railroad [8% increase]
#30,202 - Mt. Washington Cog Railway [4% increase]
#14,784 - Maine Narrow Gauge [18% increase]
#13,876 - WW&F  [12% increase]
Then EVERYONE ELSE!

FYI, MNG staff now regularly "boosts" (pay to promote) posts each week to increase viewership and likes. We do selected boosting only for key posts and events. The "blow down" video was not boosted or cross-posted, it went viral completely organically!
