Remarks & Notes 
They say Oz (aka Australia) is a magical place and the night of October 18 did not let me down. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would lens a train and a moonbow in a night photo, much less did I know that moonbows even existed until the night of October 18, when Kev Shultz invited me out to do night photos of C-Class #501 in the Junee Yard. We arrived at the yard at 2200 hrs (local Australian time) and as we began to set up lights, a line of passing showers rolled through. As we awaited the passage, the large moon appeared from behind us but with rain still falling overhead and to the east. As I examined the sky I spied a moonbow - I told Kev to check it out and sure enough, we saw not just one, but two! I quickly moved the camera away from the planned C-class shot facing west to the nearby GrainCorp Alco/Goodwin DL531 locomotive and framed up the double moonbow with a few lights on a 6 second exposure. Many thanks to Kev Shultz for having me out for this unplanned phenomenal event.

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.
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"!)
