Remarks & Notes 
It's 5:48 am at Intermediate signal "Boiler House", just east of C&O's "Riffe Scales". The moon has set, allowing for a sky full of stars to fill up the sky. The codeline still stands in use on CSX's Alleghany Subdivision, allowing the CSX HK Dispatcher in Huntington, West Virginia (previously Jacksonville) to line signals in this remote region, nestled deep in Appalachia. The signal is lit, indicating a train is approaching from the east, on its downhill trip from Alleghany Summit, nearly 30 rail miles away. The train will soon reach its crew destination from Clifton Forge to Hinton and will be recrewed and ultimately continue west toward the Coalfields of West Virginia. The Boiler House signal has approximately one year left before its removal from service, with CSX beginning the first preparations of signal replacement in Hinton and points east.

This is dedicated (with permission) to the skilled and gifted photographer - Chase Gunnoe - who regularly posts and is on staff with RP. I believe he deserves a gallery showing of his remarkable work. This is for you Chase! (More great photos to come!)
Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen 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"!)
