Remarks & Notes 
Peacefully simmering under a full moon lit sky, Rio Grande K-36 #489 sits at the head of a eastbound manifest at the Chama coaling tower, awaiting a highball to tackle the 10,000' Cumbres Pass on a chilly evening back in the 1950s..or is it? In truth it is 2015 and DRGW 489, now owned and maintained by the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, is being used for a photo night secession. The following day Cumbres Pass would bare witness to a triple headed photo freight as put on by Chama Steam.

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"!)
