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 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!)
