Remarks & Notes 
More snow into the night
Just after sunset, Union Pacific rotary snowplow No. 900082 heads east approaching Wallace, Kansas, on New Year’s Day 2007. A portion of the track being cleared of snow by the wind during the storm gives the plow a brief respite, but the rotary has plenty of more drifted snow to clear on the way to Salina. It’s the “blue hour,” that magical time during a snowy winter evening where everything turns a deep blue color. That powdery snow still coming out of the rotary’s chute is indicative of how cold it is! (Yes, it was cold!)

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"!)

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
