Remarks & Notes 
The rain has stopped and a severe thunderstorm has moved out over the Atlantic as Florida East Coast train 222 races north through the Airport Road crossing near the Titusville Autoramp. As the end of train device rolled past and the signal gates started to come up, all of a sudden a huge lightning bolt fanned out across the sky above the train, surprising me to say the least. Yes, Florida is indeed the lightning capital of North America.

An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)

Sparks fly over the railroads from celebration fireworks, maintenance and repair "sparks", locomotive exhaust fireworks, and nature's light show.

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.
