Remarks & Notes 
Charles Town, WV 11/20/2012 - The shadows of passing freight cars in the distance create a ghostly image of Norfolk Southern's northbound 38Q along the NS "H-line" to Hagerstown. Amid grand old trees, an aged B&O CPL signal stands sentry along the CSX Shenandoah Subdivision, protecting the diamond crossing with the former N&W route. The Shenandoah Subdivision links Winchester, VA and points south with the Cumberland Subdivision at Harper's Ferry. Few trains traverse this winding B&O route through the Virginia countryside--a daily local and a bi-weekly stone train to a quarry south of Winchester--while the former N&W "H-Line" sees many manifest and intermodal trains each day. Image taken from a private road crossing. ISO 500, f/4.5, 30 seconds.

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"!)
