A westbound Q-CXOLAC1-12 is lined up at La Plata as the sun sets on the day. This control point in northern central Missouri is one of the few remaining signal bridges left along the Marceline Sub between Ft. Madison and Kansas City. This is ex-Santa Fe territory as seen by many of the old signals that still were littered along the route years after the BNSF merger, but upgrades for PTC has that era slowly disappearing forever.
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"!)
