Not all starts to a new day are doom or gloom.

"Dawn" happens no matter where we live. We've just got to get used to it. How profound is that!

The ore carrier Edmund Fitzgerald works up the Wolf River to the smelters as dawn breaks. Some Trainz fans may not know that you can put some ships on invisible tracks and actually move them through your land or sea scape. Well, you can and I am adding this one to my Wolf Hill & Western RR layout.

SS Edmund Fitzgerald was a real American Great Lakes freighter (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_freighter) that sank in a Lake Superior (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Superior) storm on November 10, 1975, with the loss of the entire crew of 29. For 17 years Fitzgerald carried taconite (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taconite) iron ore (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron) from mines near Duluth, Minnesota (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duluth,_Minnesota), to iron works in Detroit (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detroit), Toledo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toledo,_Ohio), and other Great Lakes ports. Gordon Lightfoot (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Lightfoot) made it the subject of his 1976 hit song "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."

Good shot, Marc. I haven't managed to find pictures of a similar bridge on the Loire "en vie réelle," but the local scenery is really solid.

Hello, and thank you for the kind comment, I get inspired by the SNCF bridge over the river "LOIRE" in NEVERS, as shown on this picture....
