Thanks again.

I have an idea that the locomotive stands on its butt and becomes a 
rocket. :)

I have the ending clear in my mind and have thought about building that. 
But there would be about 7 minutes of black frames (or beat counting 
markers), so, bleh.  Basically the kid ends up back in the house, goes 
upstairs, brushes his teeth, goes to bed, and the last sustained guitar 
notes are the camera pulling back (crane shot) to reveal his body in the 
bed for the first time. fade to black.

yeah, pretty close to that. :)  It will always be 16:43 long.
There are 12721 rendered frames and 11341 black frames.  And some of the 
12721 are the beat-marker frames.

Those frame counts are at 24fps, which I retimed everything to when I 
recently switched from NTSC/DVD to 480p/720p.  I'm strongly considering 
retiming it back to 30fps.  I have a 720p (HD!) version rendering right 
now, which should be done in a month. Early previews of that are cool. 
But a couple of the timings are weak at 24fps.  I will probably delete 
all of the frames and retime it after that. :)
