Valley Railroad ALCo 2-8-2 is pulling forward to dump ash and the fireboy is going for the next switch. While this work was common years ago, it has vanished for the most part throughout the world. Therefore it is part of the delight of the Valley Railroad that you can go any operating day and see these ancient rituals.
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"!)
