Remarks & Notes 
Shortly after sunrise a Historic Transport Preservation (Steam Specials) charter on the C&TS rounds the big curve at Lava, on its way to plow snow farther up the line. In the distance the San Luis Valley is largely shrouded by low fog. And beyond are the Sangre de Cristo mountains. My thanks to those who liked the image enough to make it a People's Choice.

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"!)
