Remarks & Notes 
The latest local power sets for frac sand traffic in Altoona, Wisconsin includes SD60Ms and a SD40-2. A few of these units sit and idle outside the depot as lightning and severe thunderstorms pass through the area. A video of the rolling clouds can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oYodtIoPNc

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.

Nocturnal Nuances & Lights In The Night! (Between Sunset - Sunrise / Sundown - Sunup!)

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
