Remarks & Notes 
Racing into a searchlight sunset. With the sun having just dipped behind the costal overcast, Amtrak 14 races northbound toward its next stop of Oakland as it thunders past a still-active, ex-Southern Paciifc searchlight signal at the north end of Salinas. The scene comes from the vestibule of the popular private car "Silver Splendor" as it and the "Overland Trail" deadheaded to Portland to be in place for the upcoming Cascades Daylight - to be pulled by none other than SP 4449.

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