Remarks & Notes 
Farewell to Number 4. On her final day of operation, Monson #4 ran 3 public passenger trips around Portland's Eastern Promenade. When those were completed, the engine and train picked up approximately 25 photographers and headed out to the far east (railroad west) end of the museum's track for a night photo shoot. The operation was a bit of a race with mother nature, because everyone was aware that a rainstorm was right on the doorstep and that this promised to be a very wet night. Still, a number of set-ups were completed before the rain became heavy enough to preclude decent photos. Here, #4 poses under a low overcast, with some original Maine 2-foot passenger equipment from the Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes and Bridgton & Harrison Railroads. Lumedyne lighting provided by Joey Kelly.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads at sundown or in the light of sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
