Remarks & Notes 
Sunset on the Pere Marquette. Pere Marquette 1225 leads a 31-car, double-header eastbound through lush Michigan farmland, just moments before a late August sunset.

While browsing my archives recently, I came across this frame from the August, 2009 Lerro Productions Photo Charter in Owosso, MI. That trip paired the last two operable Lima Berkshire Locomotives, the PM 1225 and the NKP 765 with some 31 freight cars on Michigan's Great Lakes Central Railroad, in what has to be one of the most impressive photo freights ever assembled. Not sure how or why I overlooked this one 6 years ago, but it now has me wondering how many other undiscovered gems I might have hiding in the 2 Terabytes or so of photos I've accumulated in the last 7 or 8 years.

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"!)
