A rainy summer evening in Scranton finds a hostler spotting his charge on the turntable for a spin. The humid air and spotty rain make for a moody, but (very) wet ambiance. This photo was part of a very successful night photo shoot at Steamtown National Historic Site in conjunction with the Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railway Historical Society. Lighting by Steve Barry, Michael Burkhart, Richard Jahn, and John Gabriel. Since I posed for this scene, Bruce Barry grabbed my camera and shot for me.
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"!)
