Remarks & Notes 
November 11th, 1918 marked the end of WWI. The anniversary is celebrated everywhere in France. In the railroad domain, a unique sounds and lights show was set up at the Burnhaupt station of the “Train Thur Doller Alsace” tourist railroad (TTDA). The show is called “Train de la Paix” (Peace Train) and represents an imaginary scene on the last night of WWI where a German Train met a French Train at a station on the battle front. While the characters hesitate between keeping the war going on and a local truce to take care of the wounded, a French officer insists that the war must go on and decides to bomb the station … but the peace is announced just in time. The two trains were represented by two live steam engines, one of French origin and a Swiss “Tigerli”, reminiscent of German 3-axle steamers of the time.

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

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