Remarks & Notes 
A powerful severe thunderstorm is about to hit the SP Tucson Yard engine facilty. This time exposure captures 6 bolts. The bolt on the left hits less than a quarter mile away. I release the shutter, got my camera, tripod and sprinted for my truck before the rain and hail hit. The time is 5:30am.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

Album created by member Dana M.

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"!)
