Cecil 2. Engineer, supervisor, fellow co-worker, and RP contributor Drew Mitchem eases his 136 car coal train to a stop. With temps in the teens and 4 inches of snow on the ground, the unloading process of this Coal Creek Junction to Rush Island train continues, as the hungry Ameren Power Plant eats about 15,000 tons of coal a day to produce power to the local area. Photo taken with permission, considering of course, I do this for a living.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads at sundown or in the light of sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
