Dawn at Bealville Since the night sky lightened to forewarn dawn, clouds filled in the sky over Tehachapi Pass. A low sun tries in vain to peek through a break in the gloom. At 6:45 a.m., attention to the gray clouds and wet, dewy grass is shaken as a horn is audible blowing for Cliff siding and Tunnels 5 and 4 to the east. Moments later, a BNSF train whistles for the Bealville grade crossing under the only light of a February 27, 2016, morning. By midday, the clouds will be gone, replaced by another sunny day in California.
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!)
