I love it! Can't wait for the rest of it!

Outstanding job! This was fascinating.

Very nicely done. I enjoyed using Google Maps in tandem with the video to explore the traces of the yards, roundhouses, shops and other remnants. Thank you so much for producing this and making it available!

What a great idea.  There's so much in Salamanca to explore from the air!  Even decades later we can clearly see how busy a railroad town it was.
