Remarks & Notes 
Gerald Corder of the Locust Heights and Western Railroad sits at the Saw Mill as the Climax simmers away under the days failing light. What started as a caboose built as a playhouse transformed into a hobby for Keith Mason, a machinist and welder who began his own narrow gauge railroad on his property in 1974 and is one of railroading's hidden gems. Sadly, Mr. Mason passed away in 2016 and the Climax locomotive he built from prototype blueprints needed repairs. The family took out a loan and allowed a Photo Charter to be organized to help raise funds to offset the cost. The family continues to run the railroad on Wednesday evenings as it has for over the past 30 years for free although donations are appreciated. Lighting provided by Walter Scriptunas and Matt Wilson. For more information on the LH&W you can visit their Facebook page www.facebook.com/LHWRR/ or do a search on Google.

An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
