High Above the Magnolia Cut-Off

In this hard shot to capture, I tried to portray the entire landscape as well as something related to the train without streaking the headlights. This is high above Magnolia, WV on Tunnel Hill after dusk. Seen exiting the Graham Tunnel and crossing the Potomac River is an Eastbound autorack train. Although hard to see the train itself, one can see the EOT Blinking and CPL's shining.
Sorry, for most of my photos I have spelled it out, as I know a lot of Western US viewers are not familiar with that term. "CPL" is color position light. The B&O used them from the early part of last century. PRR used a version of these as well as some other lines.
