Remarks & Notes 
Emerging from the darkness of the night, an authentic New York Central RS-3 leads a "haunted" Halloween excursion train across a small wooden trestle near Norwood, Kansas. NYC 8255 emerged from Alco's shop in June of 1951, and has also worked for Penn Central and Amtrak. It is now one of the main locomotives used for excursions along the Midland Railway Historical Association's former Santa Fe line out of Baldwin City, Kansas.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

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"!)
