Remarks & Notes 
A rare perspective of Amtrak's K Tower in the Washington Terminal. Even between the commuter train lulls the tower bustles with activity from Amtrak, Marc and VRE traffic. Having spent a career in Air Traffic Control towers I can appreciate the responsibility and complexity in keeping America's railroads safe. Taken with permission and under escort courtesy of a good friend.
