Cold weather makes good steam as this JS Class locomotive demonstrates leaving the coal mine's "Blue Loader". The shift is almost over for this crew as they make one last trip to the washery after they climb out of the pit. Upgrade trains take the far right at 82 Station while downgrade trains will use the center track. The far left track seen here is a shunting neck used for trains to work around each other in the loading area.
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"!)
