Remarks & Notes 
Making their maiden voyage on the Lake State Railway's Huron Subdivision to Alpena, Michigan, the newly-arrived Metro-East Industries/ZTR Systems-constructed GP40-3/Road Slug set of LSRC 4303 and 303 are seen along the Tawas River in Tawas City, MI at 0036 hrs on May 6. The Slug Set wears the blue/grey lightning stripe scheme that I actually adapted for the LSRC from my HO Scale Great Lakes Eastern Railroad and had previously been applied to a pair of SD40-2s. These are the first four axles to wear this adaptation of the scheme with a second slug set due to be released from MEI in the coming week, bringing the current total of the corporate scheme to 6 units. Several more locomotives are budgeted for the year and will emerge by year's end. Photo was taken while working for the LSRC and crew was fully of the pending flash. A total of 4 Alien Bees B1600 units were used with ISO 200 and 1/250 at f5.6.

Not just heritage schemes, not just commemorative schemes - this album is devoted to some of the world's most interesting paint schemes, past or present.
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"!)
