If you want to re-live that experience, take a trip to the Chicago suburbs and find a nice place to sit and watch the commuter rush along any one of METRA’s lines. All of their locomotives and cab cars are outfitted with Pyle Gyralights (an oscillating headlight with a circular pattern instead of the figure-8 pattern of the Mars and often confused as a Mars light). It’s a great show on foggy or rainy nights.

Mars lights have not been used in a long time. Since they used a mechanical device to rotate the light around, it was high maintenance, and fell out of favor.
