Remarks & Notes 
Kansas Prairie Dawn. Just minutes after sunrise, an Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe local makes its way across the Kansas prairie east of Abilene, with a few passengers, some small freight items, newspapers and the mail.

This image was captured during a September, 2023 photo shoot organized by Dak Dillon Photography on the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad, which operates on former Rock Island trackage between Abilene and the nearby town of Enterprise. This photo shoot featured Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe #3415, a 150 ton Baldwin Pacific built in 1919. Restored for tourist operations back in 2009, the locomotive is in her final year of service before she'll require a 1,472 Service Day Inspection.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.

Nocturnal Nuances & Lights In The Night! (Between Sunset - Sunrise / Sundown - Sunup!)

Album created by member Dana M.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
