Remarks & Notes 
"12R MEETS 213"
It's a very chilly 10 degrees at Shepherdstown, WV as 213 sits in the siding to meet the oncoming 12R. The venerable Norfolk and Western CPL signals stand guard both in the foreground and distance and have observed meetings like this many times since their initial installation on the H Line in 1923. Until the late 1950's, the lenses were all amber in color *much like the PRR PLS* but were converted to the color lenses you see today.

Lights In The Night! Railroads From Another Perspective!

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"!)
