Remarks & Notes 
There's not a single railcar moving on the 65-mile Logan Subdivision, but deep in the fog-covered Guyandotte River valley at the branch line's halfway point at Ranger Siding, a C&O-era signal guards the E.E. Ranger with its approach-lit indication. Here, the occasional exchange between empties and loads occurs, controlled by CSX dispatchers 500-miles away in Jacksonville, Fla. On this night, it's exceptionally quiet and after being installed more than a half a century ago, these C&O signals still protect movements at the most lonesome control points in West Virginia. And for a brief moment, 2021 can be mistaken for a time, and era of railroading long ago.

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