Remarks & Notes 
It's hard to believe that it's been a quarter of a century since the Blue Mountain & Reading was the hottest thing in tourist railroads in the northeast. Railfan weekends were a mob scene as a Reading 4-8-4 powered trips. Night photo sessions -- done with bulbs! -- drew 200 people. This scene, however, involved only one photographer. At three in the morning, the hostler obliged by flipping the headlight on and off for one very tired photographer.

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"!)
