Remarks & Notes 
A supercell thunderstorm rages on across the Texas night sky as the flashes of lightning silhouette tall cement grain silos as a BNSF container train flashes east through Umbarger at milepost 581. This particular storm was extremely active as it crossed the state. I was driving behind the storm all evening and night never being able to catch up as lightning flashed continuously from the churning clouds.

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"!)

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.
