Remarks & Notes 
On a cold, windy night in spring, the beams of light from a southbound BNSF baretable train light up the landscape around the right of way in this 7.5 minute exposure, showing the train work from the 5th crossing of the Tehachapi Creek up to tunnel 10 that can be seen illuminated above. The red dotted trail of the train's flashing rear end device(FRED) can be seen quietly bring up the rear. While all that is happening below, the Milky Way above, slowly appears out from behind the pesky clouds that hover over the town of Tehachapi just beyond the hills.

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

Album created by member Dana M.
Album Views: 250,928
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"!)
