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!

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)

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