Remarks & Notes 
Listen...can you hear it? It's getting closer...... There's nothing like being at 7000 ft elevation in total darkness and silence and seeing and hearing a heavy freight grinding up the steep grade out of Coldstream Canyon. And at that elevation, the rails even appear to be translucent... ;-)

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"!)
