One of my first shots using a DSLR camera. A westbound empty hopper train (E819) approaches the now gone B&O CPL Bridge at Grasshopper just west of Hancock in April, 2011. I remember standing on the top of my Saturn sedan using an el cheapo tripod while balancing my best as to not move while taking the photograph.
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"!)
