Sears & Steam. Santa Fe 3751 gently eases through the sharp curve that makes up the coupling track on its return to Redondo Junction. Home to the famous 4-8-4 during its active service career, Redondo has also served as the Northern's home base, under the care of the San Bernardino Railroad Historical Society, since 1999. On this cool, fall evening, the neon lights of the iconic Sears building stand sentinel in the background as 3751 approaches the turntable to be put away for the night - another successful outing in the books.
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"!)
