Looking west toward the setting sun on the Aurora sub in Chana, Illinois. A tiny midwestern town, Chana has no stores, no gas stations, amid miles of corn. I had stopped there looking for something to drink, and after driving around for a few minutes, spotted a soda vending machine by the side of the road. Could this thing be working? Turned out to be connected to a nearby farmhouse by a long extension cord, and stocked with all my favorites. What luck.
A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
