Remarks & Notes 
Normally, my final photo for the year (day or night) in past years has been a personal thing, just getting out to visit a favorite location and its passing trains, nothing special. This night however at Port Henry held a great surprise worth sharing! Here to shoot a 608 behind a rebuilt SD60, I learned of a 252 running on 608s block and stayed to shoot it, not knowing what its leader was but taking for granted it would the usual GE. At night you become familiar with sounds of different prime movers and listening to 252 coming towards me from across town it sounded like an EMD leader, but not an SD 60 or SD 40-2. So I was left wondering just what I had coming toward me! Less than thirty seconds later at 04:48 an SD9043MAC drifted into the scene! One of four in CPs stored fleet of SD9043MACs qualified to lead in the U.S. These four have been pulled out of snowbound storage for now! 9134 makes for a memorable final shot at Port Henry for 2013. It dose not always work out this way! Wishing all my friends at Railpictures.net a Happy New Year!

Lights In The Night (Sundown to Sunrise)! Railroads In Another Perspective!

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"!)
