New video (NB Southern)

I've put a new video up on my video page.

It features NBSR 3701 and CN 7060 taking a local out to the Irving Refinery in Saint John, on a rainy Saturday in June 2003.


I'd like to point out that the quality of the videos on my video page is considerably less than what I can put on a DVD. The quality is reduced a lot to make the videos small enough for downloading.

To give you an idea, here are the sizes of a 36 second introductory segment for the upcoming VIA DVD:
- MPEG format (for web): 6.16 MB
- AVI format (for DVD): 127 MB

Web videos are about 20 times smaller than DVD videos, so the quality is less.
