Shepherdstown, WV 12/1/12 - Moments before the sun breaks the horizon above the distant mountain range, the perfectly still waters of the Potomac River reflect northbound Norfolk to Detroit intermodal train NS 227 with nothing but two locomotives, likely compensating for fluxuating traffic patterns or second sections of the train. In the foreground, abanonded abutments from the earlier railroad right-of-way over the Potomac now carry only scraggly trees.
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"!)
