Remarks & Notes 
Twenty-Seven and a half minutes elapse in this collection of four shots layered together as the Pennsy signal bridge at AR (Allegheny Range) stands tall against the backdrop of the swirling night sky and the North Star. This signal stands close to the Pennsylvania Railroad's summit across the Eastern Continental Divide 2,167 feet above sea level and lets eastbound crews know half the journey over the mountains is complete before they enter Portage Tunnel and into "The Slide" and down the mountain.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
