Remarks & Notes 
Late at night was a good time to visit Colorado & Southern’s Rice yard in Denver the late 1950s. You could set up your tripod out of the way of working railroaders. There was usually one of the road’s own 2-8-0’s shuffling cars and a set of Santa Fe units in from La Junta. On this March evening in 1959 it’s a set of FTs headed by the 105, a 1942 EMC product. These were the diesels that drove steam from the rails, a victory symbolized here by the cold, lifeless Burlington 2-8-2 stored at right.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen 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"!)
