Remarks & Notes 
It seems as if the shots you don't plan are the ones that turn out the best. I was on my way to go shoot an Ex BN unit in Gainesville, and as I made my way into Georgia I kept thinking to myself "Now how nice would it be to shoot the BN unit under this sky". It wasn't long, however, that couds came in and obscured the sky. After passing through Toccoa I came up on the Toccoa Wye where Hartwell Railway power is sometimes parked. So I began shooting the Ex CNW GP9 and then I noticed the clouds breaking. As they moved away from each other, these brilliant rays began to shoot out from them, making for the perfect photo opp!

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"!)

Some how, these locomotives have managed to last this long with the colors of their previous owners, which have since vanished into history.
