Remarks & Notes 
Cumberland, MD 5/24/2014 - The varied hues of sodium vapor lamps from street lights and signs cast a wash of different colors on the Wills Creek spillway as the eastbouund Q-394 waits its turn to enter the Cumberland yards. Stars hang over the cliffs of the Cumberland Narrows at a location on the railroad that has come to be know as "the Bud Board", for a billboard that once advertised Budweiser Beer just outside the image to the right. A new advertisement on the board casts a warm red glow on the concrete of the spillway built to control floods that once ravaged the city of Cumberland. Q-394 has had a long trip--out of Connellsville early in the afternoon, by Keystone, PA near the summit of Sand Patch around 4:30, but then not by Hyndman, PA at the bottom of the grade--just about 20 miles--until 10:30. Now, at 11:30 p.m., a new crew is on board to shuttle it the last two miles in the Cumberland yards. CSX: how it moves tomorrow.

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"!)
