Remarks & Notes 
Peacefully simmering under a full moon lit sky, Rio Grande K-36 #489 sits at the head of a eastbound manifest at the Chama coaling tower, awaiting a highball to tackle the 10,000' Cumbres Pass on a chilly evening back in the 1950s..or is it? In truth it is 2015 and DRGW 489, now owned and maintained by the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, is being used for a photo night secession. The following day Cumbres Pass would bare witness to a triple headed photo freight as put on by Chama Steam.

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
