Ed, I like your take on "Jingle Bells".  I think you should develop it further  ;D

Songs cut from the final video included:
"Ballasting, ballasting, ballasting rock."
"A beautiful sight, a hot steamy night, riding on the Sheepscot Narrow Gauge."

What a thoughtful Christmas present!
A chance for us in the away crowd to see faces and hear voices of friends we've never met in person.

Merry Christmas all!

What a GREAT idea and video.  I was sent a link to a video that combines steam and Christmas music (although it isn't 2-foot gauge).  Have a very merry Christmas!

What a great video Christmas card!  See if you can find Santa's cap flying high around the 3:00 mark. ;-)
Merry Christmas to everyone!

Well done Ed and Steve!!
Kudos also to Tj Saccoccio who produced and edited the video, and Mike Lecuyer (my brother) for lending his rendition of "Carol of the Bells".

(and to Jason for not only agreeing to try the whistle blast; he pulled the cord!)
