Remarks & Notes 
Blue hour time at Zurich: Forchbahn Be 4/6 accelerating for the grade to Rehalp and the hight of Forch.Between Stadelhofen and Rehalp, the Forchbahn trains use the tracks of the tram system, owned by the Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich (VBZ), which are electrified at 600 V DC and are largely situated in the street. Between these two points, Forchbahn trains serve intermediate tram stops at Kreuzplatz (where tram route 15 diverges), Hegibachplatz and Balgrist.[1] At Rehalp tram route 11 has its terminus, and the Forchbahn trains enter the line's separate Rehalp stop. Here they join the Forchbahn proper, which is electrified on the overhead system at 1200 V DC.

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"!)
