Remarks & Notes 
Morning run. An intermodal train slows for a crew change at Altoona in preparation for its climb up to Horseshoe curve. Deadlines always fascinate me for some reason, especially when they are filled with machines that aren't that old. They're just machines, right? But each one has stories it could tell, of long nights with tired crews, battles over mountains and weather, and skilled operators expertly handling massive amounts of tonnage over and over again.

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