I have hundreds of railway videos from YouTube, from across the globe, I can spend hours/days watching them all, cab rides are a speciality, especially those in high definition, and when you have 2 from the same region decades apart and you can see what used to be there and how things have changed, absolutely wonderful, and they bring back a lot of memories if I've been there myself on holiday over the years, trams and buses in Hong Kong and Singapore are some of my faves.

    I must admit to rarely purchasing cab ride DVD's or Blu-rays these days, there is so much on YouTube. I managed to get a few archived on to DVD now and again but the process is strictly against YT's T&C, though everybody does it. There's some very dodgy "conversion" sites which if you let them will convert your PC files to mush and try to sell them back to you for £1k's worth of bitcoins!

    For me, there are enough cab rides on YT that I have no need to collect them.
    I subscribe to many different uploaders across the world....Norway, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, Canada, USA and here.
    I haven't found any (yet) from South America or Africa, so if you know of any regular driver uploads, give me a yell please.

    The thing is Bruce, is that there have been occassions when YouTube accounts have been deleted, for whatever reason, and subsequently videos are no longer available to view, that is why I keep them on a HDD.

    It all depends on what you like to watch, there are plenty of African videos, especially, Steam, from Kenya, Zambia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa, etc, just search for African Beyer Garrats, or, Steam in Jo'Burg, Bloemfontein, Kimberley, The Cape, etc, there are quite a few to watch, they might not be recent, but, the older films are fabulous and really give an insight into how the various railway companies operated in the olden days, probably better than the recent diesels and electrics across the continent. There are several South African videographers for more modern content that upload stuff regularly, if you have a look at the video below and read in the description field where it says view more you will find several URLs of other film-makers who have stuff to watch on YT, mainly from South Africa, but, it'll give you an idea of what is currently available.

    Cab rides, and preferably those done on a regular daily basis....."at work", if you follow me.
    So that limits it to what is being worked today, virtually ruling out steam unless those still operating in China are doing cab-ride videos!

    Some of the most enjoyable and interesting for me are the Japanese and Scandinavian. High resolution (1080 minimum).

    Fine, that does limit the selection a little, I can't remember any cab rides from steam locos, probably way too far back from the front of the train anyway and you wouldn't be able to see where you are going, so, that rules that out. There are lots of other stuff, some from Norway on here, you might have already seen some of these videos, Bruce, so, apologies for duplicating stuff.

    Recently I found interesting channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/driver7519/videos Train videos (including cab rides) from ex-USSR countries, Germany, Poland and Finnland and some videos captured in 1990s! Some videos catured in Moscow Little Ring railway, since 2016 year this railway electrified and uses for passenger traffic only, but earlier this railway uses only for freight traction between various railway lines which converge in Moscow, inside the city.

    The most interesting video - holiday steam train on the Moscow Little Ring railway in 1996 year:
