Remarks & Notes 
August 29, 1998 was CTC Board Magazine's annual "Day in North America." I decided to go out early to see what I might capture on film. It was barely daybreak at the junction between NS and CSX at Big Stone Gap, but I noticed the westbound signal was a red over red over yellow ("Restricted Proceed"). I took my camera bag and tripod to this spot and waited. This is a westbound light pusher set (units 6563 and 8937) at 7:35 AM. I liked this one, but the magazine didn't use it (instead, they used two more conventional shots). Since 1998 the slide has languished in a metal Logan slide box in my closet---until today!

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
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"!)
