Remarks & Notes 
KCS Manifest Freight CXSH from New Orleans to Shreveport, LA, is seen here at sunrise descending the Huey P Long Bridge superstructure into Lobdell, Louisiana. A lucky pick-up of a track warrant from North Baton Rouge Yard to Simmesport up the road tipped me off to the trains location in Baton Rouge. When I arrived at East Bridge Junction on the East side of the Mississippi River, that this bridge crosses, his lead engines were stepping onto the big climb to the top. I easily overtook the train and settled in on the west bank for a sunrise look. Getting any KCS train on this bridge is a challenge as the SHCX is nocturnal and the CXSH is oftentimes out of town early enough to beat sunrise. For your troubles Union Pacific runs a daily MLILI from Livonia to Baton Rouge that does make it over in daytime. We'll see that train in a few postings from now. Thanks for looking and enjoy!

Rule or not rule? That is the question.
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 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!)
