Remarks & Notes 
The direct route from A to B is not always the best. If the gradient is too steep, an additional loop is an advantage. Around 1906, for example, the engineers used this spiral-shaped track guide to build the Bernina Railway below Brusio in order to gain height at a maximum gradient of 7.0 %. Train 4672 from Tirano to St.Moritz is running through the spiral and crossing the 142 meter long Brusio viaduct at 6 PM, drawing an impressive track of light through the landscape. On the right the light traces of cars on the road through Brusio, with some stars of the christmas lights. A 171 seconds exposure.

A far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.

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"!)
