Remarks & Notes 
As severe thunderstorms in the distance light up the night sky, BNSF 6792 east approaches the crossing at Oil Mills Road. Soon the doublestack train will pull in to Sweetwater, Texas for a crew change. The thunderstorms, which stretched over 200 miles from Lubbock to Wichita Falls, produced a lot of lightning, including the bolt just above the signal cabinet.

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.
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"!)
