The Southern California Chapter of the Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, also know as Railgiants Train Museum, held their second annual night photo shoot on August 2, 2014 at their museum site located on the Pomona Fairgrounds in Pomona California. The Chapter's SP 5021, a unique three cylinder locomotive, was chosen as the evenings first subject for photographers cameras. Southern Pacific Railroad's 5021 steam locomotive was built in 1926 by the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) at their Schenectady, New York, shops. It is the only member of this class of SP locomotives to be preserved, and it is one of only four 3-cylinder locomotives preserved in North America, two of which reside at the R&LHS museum.
Special thanks to our model Sam Calderwood for his efforts braving rain and smoke to make this images possible.

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
