Remarks & Notes 
A scene no longer possible. Under the starlit skies of this crisp April evening, a Norfolk Southern manifest rolls down the West Slope of the Alleghenies. On its way, the leading headlights shine bright on the classic Pennsylvania Railroad era signal bridge at Lilly. For decades, under the stewardship of 4 different railroads, these classic Position Light guided all manner of trains on the Pittsburgh Line, from the Pennsy's Broadway Limited, to Conrail's van trains, to NS's modern day services. Today, however, these signals are no more as technology's ferocious pace captured another piece of historic equipment. Forever a memory now on the West Slope.

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"!)

Signals with character, many falling into history.
