Remarks & Notes 
It is about 2:00 in the morning as a northbound KCS coal train, led by Union Pacific 8752, sits in the siding at Page. The train was stopped for a couple hours waiting for two southbound KCS trains, which gave us ample time to wait for the Milky Way to rise above the train. The engineer or conductor would come down and chat with us and see how we were taking the photos of the Milky Way. Yes it was very dark out there in eastern Oklahoma.

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
