Night Light

Art Chase says of his photo, "Alaska Railroads 4317 leads a late afternoon oil train back to Fairbanks. It is -51 degrees on my thermometer ( that 83 degree's below freezing!). The ice fog has been coming in waves all day long. It has been so cold that hands freeze to anything metal instantly. She was sitting back in the trees when I found them, and they were running in a high notch just to keep the diesels warm. When the train headed to Fairbanks, you could hardly see them, but for the blazing glow of those four bright lamps." 1/3/09
