Remarks & Notes 
The latest local power sets for frac sand traffic in Altoona, Wisconsin includes SD60Ms and a SD40-2. A few of these units sit and idle outside the depot as lightning and severe thunderstorms pass through the area. A video of the rolling clouds can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oYodtIoPNc

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.

Lights In The Night! Railroads From Another Perspective!

An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
