Remarks & Notes 
Norfolk Southern History. A lot of NS history is represented in this shot. The Virginian, which represents a predecessor line, brings a daily autorack through Alston on its way to the Port in Charleston, SC. This shot was taken at the location of what once was the junction between the Southern's W-Line, which headed up through Spartanburg and the Saluda Grade, and the V-Line, which headed past Peak, Pomaria, Prosperity, and ultimately Greenville. All of the V-Line through here has been abandoned, except for a small portion near Prosperity, and has been turned into a Rails-to-Trails segment of the Palmetto Trail.

From a "hint" of "Bee" (NKP 765), colorful "Bees" (KCS), "Bees" w/ attitude, to "Bees" that "sting" your eyes, in their own way they have "Bee" on display! Equipment that "Buzzes" wearing Yellow & Black! ("Bees" can still "Bee" entering this "hive"!)
Lights In The Night (Or The Evening/Morning)! Railroads From Another Perspective!

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"!)
