Remarks & Notes 
On Friday 10-2-2009 the C&TS ran a moonlight dinner train to Osier using D&RGW 2-8-2 487. After hustling from Colorado Springs I made it to Chama just in time to catch its departure and followed it up the hill. Seen here silhouetted in the setting sun about to take water at the summit of Cumbres Pass 10,022' above sea level.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

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"!)
