Remarks & Notes 
A night time triple meet is in progress at Cima. In the north siding, an empty coal train idles away. On the main, a westbound stack train slowly eases west, cresting Cima Hill and starting the descent of the 2.2%. He's also taking it easy because the third player of this triple meet is taking the south siding and is just clearing up. The headlights catch the exhaust of the first two trains, enhancing an already ethereal scene with the Milky Way core looming overhead.

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.

A collection of the best night skies on here. Milky way, star trails, the northern lights. God's handiwork!

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