There is no trickery here. The "797" stopped in Highfield to work the MMID interchange giving the sun time to set and the fog and snow to get heavier. At 5:50PM the train finally departed Highfield bound for Hanover allowing me to get a night, silhouette, pan shot at 1/10th of a second.
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"!)
