Remarks & Notes 
Sunset on the Pere Marquette. Pere Marquette Locomotive #1225 leads a long, double-headed freight through Smith's Crossing on the Great Lakes Central Railroad, as the train barrels toward its destination in nearby Owosso, MI, on a warm August evening. This image was created near North Smith Road in Owosso, and depicts the very last run-by from a 2-day, 2009, Lerro Productions Event, which featured the only pair of operable Lima Berkshire Locomotives, the Pere Marquette #1225 and the Nickel Plate #765.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
