Remarks & Notes 
7am and still virtually dark on a freezing foggy November morning in Fuxin, China. SY Class No 1378 is ready with a loaded train of coal. Once scenes like this were common all over the world certainly I can remember similar scenes from childhood. This was perhaps my last chance to savour (and literally taste) the atmosphere of working industrial steam, I hope the shot conveys all that makes working steam so unique and scenes like this just a memory.

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"!)
