I had set out with the full intention of capturing the intense Aurora Borealis that was ongoing during the short night chase of the New England Central train 323, however Mother Nature had other plans on this particular night, as dense rapidly forming fog filled in the valley just ahead of the train nearly everywhere I arrived. The 4-unit SD40M-2 NECR train 323-07 is seen crossing the White River at West Hartford, Vermont, as the fog was just starting to settle in fully, providing a neat effect as the flash did their job under the low ceiling.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads at sundown or in the light of sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
