Remarks & Notes 
Minutes out of Denver Union Station, Burlington 9988A sweeps past the 38th Street yard office with Number 10, the Denver Zephyr. It’s mid-January, 1965, and though the sun has barely set behind the Rockies, the temperature is in the 20s and falling. Passengers, some of whom have just come from he ski slopes, are settling into the warmth of coaches and sleepers, perhaps ordering an early drink. Sixteen hours and 1034 miles from now will find them at Chicago’s Union Station, just a few steps from the Loop, where a day of steady snow and temperature in the teens awaits them.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

Album created by member Dana M.

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"!)
