Remarks & Notes 
After shooting the Los Pinos water tank with the Milky Way in 2010, I then wanted to shoot a steam locomotive in the same fashion. It would be nearly a year and a half later when I would get my chance. Seen here, Rio Grande 485 (489) sits at the bridge at Cumbres Pass on a crisp cold September Night. The clouds would roll in just 30 minutes after this picture was taken which would have ruined this picture opportunity. Here is the Los Pinos water tank from 2010. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=326691&nseq=0 Photo taken during a Lerro Productions Photo Charter event.

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"!)
