[Video] "OY" on the C&T - 2/29-3/1, 2020

Videographers: Brian Jansky & Jason Rose

This event was absolutely incredible! A once-in-a-lifetime experience...the pinnacle of railroad photography excursions. I can't imagine any event that could exceed the scenic beauty, uniqueness, professionalism, and camaraderie of this trip. The railroad did a superb job of organizing and executing every aspect from feeding 200 people for 2 days to staging more than a dozen photo locations across 14 miles of mountain railroad.

My one regret is the lack of tripod use. I was on the Wrangler Crew (from the Friends of the C&T) and due to space limitations on the buses we were asked not to bring tripods. For me photography was secondary to managing the photo lines and ensuring guest safety. That said, many of the shots turned out pretty good.

Special thanks to Brian Jansky for allowing me use of his video to supplement what I was able to capture. Brian and I have been friends for about a decade and drove up there together from Houston/Spring. These long trips are always better when a buddy rides along.

Also, special thanks to Bill Kepner for allowing me to use his video clip of The Demise of Rory, the Snowman. I completely missed this hilarious escapade put together by Pete Lerro and his crew.

I wasn't planning to post this here, as there are many videos already available that are better quality. But, I figured with most of us sitting at home these days, some additional viewing content might be welcomed.


Happy 50th Anniversary to the Cumbres & Toltec. Here's to many MANY more anniversary’s! smileys with beer
