Excellent drone footage as usual, I really like when you get in tight and show what's going on in the construction process ! How far apart are the north and south towers that you showed being installed ? Also the music level is just right. Thank you for your dedication, time and hard work shooting this epic railroad construction. Brightline is amazing and the future looks bright for all Floridians !!!

Watching them line up those bolts in the concrete with the holes in the tower, knowing the same people/crew did not make both parts - what came to mind as they guided it into place was George Peppard saying, "I love it when a plan comes together"

Thanks for all the updates and excellent videos you have been providing during the Brightline construction

Great video of a very dangerous installation . Any crane lifting operation can go horribly wrong at any second, all working were working very Safe .

QUESTION : Do you know how much new welded rail, how many concrete ties have been used and how many tons of ballast has been used ? I worked for Union Pacific Railroad first as a mechanic maintaining 14 Plasser Tampers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri and Illinois . I worked as a rail train operator unloading and loading rail in 18 of UP's system . New construction is very interesting, building the roadbed, installing the crossties, and rail, then dumping ballast, tamping and then dumping more ballast and tamping the track until it is stable enough for normal train traffic . Just the amount of ballast used on that project is awesome . Your video series has been great and the amount of time you have spent and the amount of traveling you have done is an understatement . What is the date this project started and when do they project when it will be completed ? Again, Great video series . Keep up the awesome work . Thanks

As a local Brevard resident I can't say how much I love your video updates on Brightline. Use to live very close to the Babcock railroad crossing and have always loved trains, part of me slightly wishes I still lived over there to see this train a little more regularly. Anyways, thanks for all the updates!

How much is the line/route doubled tracked, will it come back to hurt them because they have too much single track working?

What's a "single mass signal" that you mentioned? Never heard of that signal type.

Another impressive video. Why do they choose a cantilever design rather than a gantry over all the tracks. Wouldn't be easier to build 2 towers and plonk the span on top of them?

How far away are the signals from the Virtual Railfans' Cocoa Florida cam?

I wonder what kind of train protection system is used. Probably not ACSES. Most likely ATCS
