Twilight shot of a CPL at East End FS interlocking, controlled by the operator at Newton Falls, OH, on CSX's New Castle Sub. The op had just told a westbound rack train that he'd line him through, which gave me the opportunity to open the shutter and catch the signal change from Stop to Approach and, seconds later, Clear. (August 09, 2002)

Later that evening, a 13-minute exposure looking up at the same signal.

Right at sunset, six SD80MACs and a pair of SD70MACs lay over at the Selkirk Fuel Plant. (June 07, 1998) Pardon the poor, old scan of a slide.

Last one: Q639 twists through the S-curve at CP-72 (or "Ringo" for the old-timers) on the west side of Terre Haute, IN, as flags flutter at a garage and atop the MAB Paints factory. (April 18, 2003)

I hope everyone's enjoyed my entries; I'm well aware they pale in comparison to the entries of others, but isn't the point of the contest to encourage everyone to share their work? Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone for contributing!
