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.
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"!)
