Remarks & Notes 
Photographing these "Sparkly Trains" as they are often referred to can be a challenge. They are often photographed in the dark and spark output can vary greatly drastically changing the lighting conditions created by the sparks. Good guides have the connections needed to order these trains for their clients. These JS 2-8-2 steam locomotives do spark under normal working conditions but rarely to the level of the special runs. The crews run them hard to create massive showers of burning coal embers that are shot high into the air that drift back over the the train still glowing.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.

Sparks fly over the railroads from celebration fireworks, maintenance and repair "sparks", locomotive exhaust fireworks, and nature's light show.

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