That single high-mounted headlight is interesting when you think about it. Railroaders are used to seeing a single headlight like that approaching at night and as such, it would cause no undue alarm. However, the stock Model T headlights approaching at night would naturally give a first impression of a highway vehicle on the railroad where it did not belong! NOT A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION,......"PANIC!!!" My first thought in seeing this photo was that it was strange that the Model T headlights were removed, and a single headlight was mounted up high, and, why would they go to that trouble??? But again, in thinking about it, maybe it does make sense, huh?

Pulling not just one, but two railroad cars? I'm guessing they weren't expecting to go anywhere in a hurry?

Note the 26/27 roadster on the street in the background.

Plus a light from above is more effective I would think.
