Remarks & Notes 
On January 29, 2018, a trio of Central Maine & Quebec Railway SD40F-2s await the next day's departure from Farnham, Quebec, as the CMQ 'Job 2' train. This particular evening, with them positioned where they were and a gorgeous sunset unfolding, I opted to use a combined UAS and Alien Bees approach for the scene. Using a quartet of Alien Bees at approximately 1/2 power, I was able to illuminate the train and capture the overall scene at 1/2 second on the P4P. Several factors played into the timing allotment, including a steady breeze with occasional gusts and a temp of -5 degrees F at the time. There have been several more trials since this with better results that I will get around to posting at some point.

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"!)
