I have been watching off and on the Rail cam at Flagstaff, and reading the Chat. I was going to start commenting some, but apparently I need to open a you tube channel first. That's something I know nothing about. Can someone enlighten me? Would appreciate it. Thanks.
I know I could just go to google to get info, and I have, but I'm wondering about opening a channel for the soul purpose of joining the chat. I probably won't be doing anything else with it. Sort of a means to an end sort of thing.

Paul -- If I am remembering correctly - All you need to do is register (sign up).

You will need to sign up anyway if you ever wish to post a video.
Be sure and register with a "handle" that you wish to have seen.
I was watching it the other day while a freight was rolling thru, and some guy steps into the middle of the tracks like he is playing chicken with the train. The train went into full emergency stop, and the guy jumps out of the way at the last second. The guy must be mental, or on something. Just crazy.
All in all, it's very interesting to watch, and chat.
At the Ashland, VA rail cam, you can see a guy who pedals around on a bicycle quite a bit. He is usually wearing what looks like a cowboy hat. The rest of his attire will be spandex pants or a complete dark colored body suit that is covered with small light bulbs that twinkle. He usually smiles real big at men or waves to them.
