Remarks & Notes 
Nearly half an hour elapses during this exposure as the landmark AT&SF searchlights at Edelstein beam through the receding fog and the stars and a crescent moon set in the sky behind the Illinois prairie. A westbound takes a clear signal from the searchlights which stood for upwards of 60 years, but have since fallen to modern technology. The last of the Santa Fe signals on the Chillicothe have fallen, and with them, the character and charm of the former Santa Fe transcon has been eliminated.

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"!)

Signals with character, many falling into history.
