Smog, smoke, steam, the reflections of the loco in the puddles, the smell of burning coal, the orange headlight from the engine, the train crew going about their final inspections of the loco before starting up on the night shift. A moment in timeI shall never forget.
The steam depot at Fuxin certainly made for some atmospheric shots at night time and I was very lucky to witness this scene all to myself as the other photographers had already left. Alas, such scenes are no longer possible to see as steam was phased out at Fuxin in August 2016.
A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
