Remarks & Notes 
I'm tooling around Tacoma after fixing the "little trains" only to realize I've seriously misjudged the sunset. I should be at Steilacoom, but that's a half hour away. Where, where can I go to catch a train with this sunset as a backdrop? A crackle over the radio and I hear SDRX 908 asking permission to pass the red at G street. Sounder of course! You should have seen the sunset 5 minutes earlier. Click Here to see this scene in 1978 from Blair Kooistra!

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"!)
