Not only is this type of lighting rare, but it only lasts a few minutes when it shows up. It's hard to catch a train, at exactly the time you want it, on a single track main, so I can consider myself lucky that I was positioned at the passing siding near Seymour on this morning to capture the sunrise, as an empty coal train raced westbound.
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"!)
