Rainbow
Title:  Rainbow
Description:  Rainbow - Off to work another block - Throw your turn-out, clear out for the string & wait to be picked up. Of course, our Heavenly switchman got called away before this one moved all the way through, but not before popping up with four fingers of individual rainbow scattered across the yard - unfortunately secondary, tertiary, and quat being far fainter, and in an act of diety humor, almost all positioned behind the bars of the block lights and other impediments to landing it on the camera sensor... but witnessing it was pretty darn impressive. Sometimes you just have to put down the camera and watch.
