Been playing with some video editing software on one of my latest projects. Let me know what you think!

Nice job! I, too, am one who prefers to tinker and upgrade what I already have rather than buy something different. I have an older Athearn TR5-A switch engine I'll have to re-motor someday. The open frame motor just draws too much current. Decoders don't take kindly to that! :oops:
