Having quenched her thirst at the end of a long day, the crew of Sumpter Valley's 2-8-2 No. 19 prepare to vacate the track by the water tower to allow No. 3, the railroad's 2-truck Heisler, to do the same. Part of a 2 day annual Phototrapher's Special with lighting by Lerro Productions featuring No. 19, an oil-burning 1920 Alco built locomotive that is native to the original Sumpter Valley Railroad and No. 3, a wood-burning 2-truck Heisler, built in 1915 for Eccles Lumber which, though not native to the line, did see sporadic service at original line.
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"!)
