Remarks & Notes 
North Star and semaphores… Under the watchful gaze of the North Star a pair of near century old Union Switch & Signal upper quadrant semaphores stand a silent guard along BNSF's Raton Subdivision near Colmor, NM. Under the forgiving cover of darkness the old semaphores, joined rail, and wood ties that make the Raton Subdivision a living museum seems to harken back to a near by gone era of railroading, where these were the vanguard of the day. While very little use graces these rails today the old semaphores at MP 712 can still claim to protect Amtrak's Southwest Chief each day, amazing that all these years later they still continue to serve the route of the Chiefs.

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"!)

Signals with character, many falling into history.
