Remarks & Notes 
I think many people, including natives such as myself, tend to think that New York City is laid out on flat 4x8' plywood tables. I submit with this image that it is not. Looking west from the M line's Brooklyn's Myrtle-Wykoff station to the Knickerbocker Ave and Central Ave stations we see that the topography dips and swoops like a bird rather than a solid straight line. The consist I believe is made some of the newest cars of the MTA subway, the R-160A's. These were built by either by Kawasaki or Alstom in the years 2005-2008. In the distance can be seen a tower at Myrtle Ave where the M line joins the J and Z line.

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"!)
