Remarks & Notes 
Daylight after dark. The blue hour is fast coming to a close in downtown Portland, OR, as the beautiful SP #4449 performs a slow run-by or two for photographers gathered at a 2018 Lerro Productions photo shoot. I think that virtually all of the folks who attended this event would have been willing to pony up significantly more cash if it had been possible to take this big thoroughbred out on a main line and cut her loose. Unfortunately, recent policy decisions on the part of Amtrak made doing that anyplace locally a very difficult proposition, at least in the near term. However, we all remain cautiously optimistic that at some point in the future, the opportunity will arise to do a proper charter with the beautiful train you see here.

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"!)
