The day after Christmas doesn't mean the end of North Pole Express trains at the Valley Railroad in Essex, Connecticut. Trains continue typically until the 28th of the month, running four trains a night. Here, Valley veteran No. 40 brings the second NPE of the evening north over old Deep River Road in the village of Centerbrook, located in Essex, Connecticut.
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"!)
