3/3 – After the storm – NECR and P&W


OK, last one to catch up on!  This was after the snowstorm – which lasted from Sunday night until Monday night (don’t ask about pictures during the storm – that was a fiasco!).  And the sun was shining bright on Tuesday, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to catch the Providence & Worcester speeding south along the Thames.  But this day I’d get a bonus across the river.

Yep, as you can see, the New England Central was running late, and I was able to shoot NECR train NERWNE rolling north along the Thames River, with the snow covered Uncasville landscape as a backdrop.  Soon after the NECR faded from view, the P&W came into the picture in the form of NR-2.  I bagged the train at Mill Cove, then called it a morning.  I think I came away with some decent stuff.
