Remarks & Notes 
A night portrait of Deutsche Reichsbahn's electric locomotive Class 218 #031-3 on the turntable of the loco shed "Bw Halle P". This electric locomotive was built by AEG Berlin in 1937 as Class E 18 #31. There were a total of 55 locomotives built. The locomotives which operated later for the Deutsche Reichsbahn (East Germany) were renumbered as Class 218 in 1970. This locomotive was modified at the VES-M Halle of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (Versuchs- und Entwicklungsstelle Maschinenwirtschaft, in English: railway research and development department) and converted to reach a maximum speed of 180 km/h (110 mph). It belongs to the "Verkehrsmuseum Dresden" ("Dresden Transport Museum"). Deutsche Reichsbahn's 2-10-0 Decapod steam locomotive 52 #9900-3, the only preserved locomotive out of a series of 25 Class 52 locomotives which were converted to brown coal firing, can be seen in the background.

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"!)
