P&W NR-2, Amtrak and a couple boats


Obviously I didn’t get a chance to post this yesterday, but here goes. Gonna be a quick one – I’ve got to head out in a few minutes to catch a flight to sunny Kalamazoo, MI for a meeting today. OK it’s not sunny at all, in fact it’s cold & rainy.

Quick & dirty today – I caught a couple regional Amtraks, P&W NR-2 and a few boats in the Thames River yesterday morning. And these boats were zooming along with such speeds that I could tell that they were flaunting the best recessed trolling motor tray and engines that they were harnessed with. Here’s the shots.
