Remarks & Notes 
A cold Ely sunset. With most of the sane photographers already headed back to their hotels for hot showers, I risk the loss of some critical anatomical hardware as I shoot Nevada Northern's #40, putting her Steptoe Flyer consist away in the last light of the day. Clouds and snow had dominated this particular Saturday, and admittedly, I had tossed my camera in the trunk of my rental car just as soon as our train arrived back in Ely. I was pretty much done. As I attempted to thaw out my poor, numb fingers in the railroad gift shop, I suddenly spied a break in the cloud layer above. Sensing that something good was about to happen, I raced back to the car, grabbed my gear and joined the only two other guys I knew who were insane enough to hang around in these conditions. For the next 15 minutes, we were treated to some very pretty sun flares through the lingering cloud deck. Yeah, it was worth the frostbite. An hour later, it was snowing again.....

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads at sundown or in the light of sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
