Remarks & Notes 
Charles Town, WV 11/20/2012 - A B&O CPL signal stands sentry at midnight along the CSX Shenandoah Subdivision, protecting the diamond crossing of the Norfolk Southern's "H-Line" to Hagerstown. The Shenandoah Subdivision links Winchester, VA and points south with the Cumberland Subdivision at Harper's Ferry. Few trains traverse this winding route through the Virginia countryside--a daily local twice a day, and a bi-weekly stone train to a quarry south of Winchester. The CPL is somewhat unique: it has only clear and stop indications, as the signal clears as a train approaches the block so long as the Norfolk Southern route has no trains lined through; the Shenandoah Subdivision has no other signals on the line until reaching the approach and absolute signals at Harper's Ferry. 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"!)
