About a week of P&W stuff


Well, the week is on the calendar.  I’ve only got 3 times I went out shooting in that timeframe – September 11th, 16th and 19th. Anyways, two are of Providence & Worcester train NR-2, and the third was of a couple cars in Willimantic.

So, in the usual “I’m catching up” fashion, we’ll keep things short, and cut right to the chase.

On my way to my daughters’ gymnastics practice, I noticed something odd in the NECR/P&W yard in Willimantic – a couple of blue hoppers.  Upon checking into them, it turns out there’s a pair of P&W MoW ballast hoppers in the yard, so I got a couple shots before heading to the gym.

One of those oh-so-rare holes in my schedule opened up, and I was able to catch P&W train NR-2 at Mill Cove, and then later crossing Shaw’s Cove in New London.  Oh, yeah, and the timing worked out pretty well at Mill Cove – caught NR-2 with a tug heading north in the river.

Another hole in the schedule let me get NR-2 at Mill Cove again – this time no tug, but they scared a few birds off of the tracks – then crossing the Thames River.
