Remarks & Notes 
The new kids in town

Two motors of WATCO's newest shortline, the Kanawha River Railroad, sit quiet in Nitro Yard (presumably assigned to the Nitro local) awaiting the next day's assignments. While only in operation for around a month, the 309 mile long operator of the former NYC/CR/NS West Virginia Secondary has stirred quite a buzz in the railroad communities along the line from Columbus to Charleston and down to Elmore, bringing life back to a line that has suffered from declining coal and chemical industries for the past several years.

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"!)

From a "hint" of "Bee" (NKP 765), colorful "Bees" (KCS), "Bees" w/ attitude, to "Bees" that "sting" your eyes, in their own way they have "Bee" on display! Equipment that "Buzzes" wearing Yellow & Black! ("Bees" can still "Bee" entering this "hive"!)
