On the first day of spring I can't help but reflect on a winter that, in the New York area at least, was somewhat underwhelming, in contrast to many parts of the USA that really got hammered.... plenty of evidence of that here on RP! On a day that was a welcome reminder of the season for New York City, a Long Island Rail Road afternoon peak hour train is leaving Long Island City yard, heading to it's first stop at Hunters Point Avenue. Waiting its turn in the background is DE30AC 407.
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"!)
