Taken on June 25, 2010 just a few minutes after sunset. East of Galesburg, Illinois.
This was a quiet spot from traffic and yet noisy from all of the nocturnal critters beginning to stir. It was difficult to hear the train approaching from around the far curve with all the nature racket going on around me.
I stayed until 9 pm while waiting to video two more trains. But the video is pretty dim and won't be posted.
