Remarks & Notes 
While preparing to move NCTM's Southern GP30 from a roundhouse track to the turntable, the engineer starts up the EMD, shooting a could of smoke into the sky. Far above is a crescent moon, which is very fitting for an event hosted next to the Southern's crescent mainline.

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"!)
