There are still traces of snow on the ground from the previous weekend's storms, as a Long Island Rail Road EMD DE30AC is caught by the setting sun leading its train out of Long Island City yard to its first stop at Hunterspoint Avenue. Across the East River in Manhattan, the iconic Empire State Building stands tall 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"!)
