Remarks & Notes 
Back in the 1860's, artificial light was limited to single flame devices like candles and lanterns. Consequently, everyone was used to moving around in the dark, much more than what we are used to today. If you let your eyes get used to the dark, it is amazing how much you can see. Here you can get a good idea of what train travel was like at night over 150 years ago.

Lights In The Night (Sundown to Sunrise)! Railroads In Another Perspective!

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"!)
