Remarks & Notes 
As Amtrak service increased in the early 21st Century, the North Carolina Department of Transportation built a new station in Cary, eight miles west of the state capital of Raleigh. Opened in 2011, the new station featured a larger waiting room, restrooms, a staffed ticket sales window and checked baggage - along with many more parking spaces than in Raleigh (and a statue of a railroader!). The station also has bus service. On the north side of the station, on trackage owned by Norfolk Southern, the Piedmont and Carolinian trains make their stops, and on the south side is the CSX mainline, which is used by the Silver Star. And on rare occasions, passenger trains have been known to make stops on both lines simultaneously!

Lights In The Night (Sundown to Sunrise)! Railroads 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"!)

Railroad stations come in a wide variety of sizes and styles, and this album will attempt to catalog these.
