Remarks & Notes 
Sometimes things just don't go as planned. I had often thought about catching a lengthy freight at this location but looking in the other direction. The tracks hug the shoreline and lengthy freight would look cool as they traced the coast. So I was set up facing east and just as the train arrived a small cloud did as well. Ahh, I was cloud f@#$%**, not like that has never happened before. However, as I was walking back to my car I saw this shot from the opposite end of the rock formation I had been standing on. Not the shot I came for but one I was grateful to walk away with. These containers arrived in Whittier, AK after a 7 day voyage on the barge from Seattle. Most will terminate in Anchorage but more than a few will continue to the end of the line in Fairbanks.

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"!)
