The BNSF local out of La Crosse is toughing out the blizzard switching the sand plant in Maiden Rock, WI. A couple of MOW workers arrived early to clean snow out of the switches and stayed to help protect the crossing and anything else that may be needed, with this heavy snowfall and high winds.
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"!)
