The Envelope Of Light. Amtrak Train 30 (Capitol Limited) crossed the Youghiogheny River in McKeesport, Pennsylvania at a little before 0700 on Sunday, May 22, 2022 with P42DC AMTK 48 leading 5 Superliners. As it turns out, this is exactly the right time for the sun to come up over the horizon and illuminate the entire train on this deck plate girder bridge. A relatively recent construction, this span was built by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in 1967 as part of a project to cease street running in McKeesport.
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!)
