West Portal Cascade Tunnel; What sometimes looks like a worm hole straight out of Star Trek or a time travel portal is the powerful headlights of a westbound locomotive highlighting the condensing air as it cools on exit from the tunnel on BNSF's fastest route through the Cascades - or under at this location.
An approach signal greets this train casting a yellow over red glow on the snow.
Over 3,500 photos (and growing) that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us are asleep. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And - I'm still finding lights to "switch on"!)
