Remarks & Notes 
There is plenty of New York City history in this photograph! The dome of the landmark former Williamsburg Savings Bank Building (1875), together with the towers of the Williamsburg Bridge (1903), combine to form the backdrop for two of New York Transit's 'old soldiers' still going about their business at dusk on a spring evening in April 2018. An outbound J train of R32 stock, the oldest still in operation on NYT (1964), meets a Z train of empty R42 stock (1969-1970) heading into Manhattan. The Chase Manhattan Bank signage atop the buildings on the left, completes the scene.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

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"!)
