Remarks & Notes 
Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad is sending a Work Train out of Antonito, CO pulling a flanger and associated support cars to clear the line of snow after a long winter. Train is crossing Ferguson's trestle also known as Hangman's trestle just moments after sunrise. This scene is courtesy of the Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad who operated a Flanger train on March 12th & 13th for the benefit of 40 lucky and adventurous photographers who were treated with stunning weather conditions to capture scenes similar to the above.

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"!)
