The sun has both literally and figuratively set on the Ringling Brothers circus train for the final time on the road for the Blue Unit train on May 9. Enroute from Charleston, WV to Uniondale, NY, the final circus train is seen crossing the mighty Potomac River from Sheperdstown, WV into Sharpsburg, MD with a mix of NS locomotives up front as the sun sets and a full mine rises in the distance. It's been a good run Ringling Brothers and as several folks summed up on from the train - "Don't be sad or cry because it's over, smile and be happy that it happened!"
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"!)
