Remarks & Notes 
With the desolate and vast wide open vistas of the Mojave Desert forming the backdrop a classic old US&S searchlight signal stands guard at the west end of Basin, CA where Union Pacific's Cima Subdivision leaves the confines of Afton Canyon for the open desert. These venerable old railroad signals have severed on lines across the Country for decades but one day they will enter the 'class 1' history books along with the semaphores they replaced and the first generation motive power they once worked along side. On this calm desert evening the searchlights at Basin patiently await their next call of duty, protecting the Cima Subdivision.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
