Every night is an adventure trackside! Tonight brought freezing rain covering everything in over a quarter inch of ice by train time. Notice the ice spraying off the rail at the front wheel of 3809 in the photo! Strap on boot traction devices are a must here for safety! Flash units are enclosed in zip lock bags with icicles on them. The pair of GP 40-2s are pulling hard coming past at 04:56 with interchange from VRS in Burlington.
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"!)
