Remarks & Notes 
Winter professionals prevail…… After a long day on the hill Union Pacific's spreaders come home to Truckee after having returned the flow of commerce to Union Pacific's Sierra Crossing. After having 54" of fresh Sierra Cement fall at Norden in the previous 24 hours the spreaders had their work cut out, rotary plows ready in Roseville in case conditions on the hill deteriorated. Through their efforts however, with the aid of snow cats, the spreaders dug out the mountain once again. As night over takes the Sierra light snow continues to fall as the spreaders pass the Truckee Amtrak station, their day near its end they will await the hill's next call to service.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.

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"!)
