Remarks & Notes 
A rainy summer evening in Scranton finds a hostler spotting his charge on the turntable for a spin. The humid air and spotty rain make for a moody, but (very) wet ambiance. This photo was part of a very successful night photo shoot at Steamtown National Historic Site in conjunction with the Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railway Historical Society. Lighting by Steve Barry, Michael Burkhart, Richard Jahn, and John Gabriel. Since I posed for this scene, Bruce Barry grabbed my camera and shot for me.

Taking a look at the same train and scene as captured by different photographers. The best way to view will be to sort by photo date so the photos are grouped together.

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"!)
