Paradiddle "Train" Beat

Later tonight (Friday Sept 6th), I'm playing a show with Brett Harris at the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh. In our rehearsals prepping for the show, I came up with this idea for a fun exercise.

The song "Unbroken" features a basic "train" beat throughout most of the song, and I thought it would be fun to try using different stickings to play this beat.  What if we took a paradiddle and started it on the "and" of the beat (where the accent of the train beat is played normally)?  Here is what it would look like:
