Two firsts for the Vermont Railway on September 5, as the first southbound move of the Strates Carnival Train departs Burlington, Vermont, behind Vermont Railway SD70M-2 432, which is making its first lead trip on the Northern Subdivision. Train is seen at Florence, Vermont, with the aid of AlienBees lighting.
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"!)
The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
