I'm looking at more options for railfanning at night? Does anyone
know of any places in Thomasville and/or High Point where there is
enough light beside the railroad tracks that a person can photograph
or video passing trains? Thanks!

I can't think of anywhere in HP where there is a RR crossing. Seems the tracks are above ground or below ground. The tracks run parallel to English St, you may be able to scout it during the day for a good vantage point. Be advised that side of town is sketchy at night.
The depot is on High St but I not aware if they permit train fans down to the platform.

Thomasville has a nice crossing at Randolph/Salem St next to the Big Chair.

Have you been to Ruffin? Yes, it's a real place.

I have many times. When I fan that area I usually start in Greensboro and go to Lynchburg, VA and back for the day. For some reason I rarely go to High Point, Thomasville, etc. I'm trying to change that.
