Remarks & Notes 
The latest local power sets for frac sand traffic in Altoona, Wisconsin includes SD60Ms and a SD40-2. A few of these units sit and idle outside the depot as lightning and severe thunderstorms pass through the area. A video of the rolling clouds can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oYodtIoPNc

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
