Remarks & Notes 
About the only train around, the westbound Pennsylvanian. We could hear him coming for quite a few minutes as the GE hustled it's short consist around Horseshoe Curve and towards us. We didn't realize how much light we lost, and how much fog rolled in, until the headlight foreshadowed Amtrak's arrival at MG. A few seconds later, the evening returned to it's quiet stillness, and we retreated for a few beers at our mountain lodging of choice.

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"!)
