Beautiful star capture, Jeff. Simply an amazing photo. What was used to illuminates the signal bridge? Originally, I thought it was the headlight of a passing train, but it appears that it's possibly a spotlight? Thanks!

When I first saw the thumbnail, I wanted to give this a PCA vote! Spectacular photo!

That, is a very cool shot! One wonders if there's a planet out there with rail-fans as well.

Fantastic, Jeff. How long was the exposure?

Thanks for all the comments. What started out as a night to try and shoot the meteor shower, turned into a night with the Milky Way. It was so crisp and clear that night, it was easily visible with the naked eye. Anyway, the shot was taken with a Nikon D3s, 30s/4.5 at ISO 12800. From there it was processed in Nikon Capture NX2 with a half stop push and some noise reduction. The signal bridge was light painted with a Maglite "C" cell flashlight.

A PCA from me without any hesitation whatsoever. Beautiful photograph!

Proof that some of the best Railfan shots don't even need a Train in the Photo.

PCA is an auto thought by me when looking at this photo. This is incredible.
