The stillness in the middle of the night is deafening along the floor of the famous Shenandoah Valley. The roar of bugs chirping or local wildlife calling out can be heard. Finally off in the distance a rumble and then a horn, The rumble begins to overtake the white noise surrounding me and again another horn. Finally a northbound approaches. These rails have been laid for over 125 years and is now a vital artery for the railroad that owns them. Bentonville is located about 10 miles south of Front Royal in Warren County, VA.

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"!)
