Saturday night in Grafton 3


Saturday night I was asked if my Lumedyne and I could join a couple other photographers up in Grafton, MA to shoot the Grafton & Upton power.  With nothing on the schedule, I accepted their offer.

I met up with Nick Palazini and Dave Jodoin in Webster, MA for the ride up to Grafton.  There we’d meet up with Josh Oparowski and begin the evening’s festivities.  After a short ride to Grafton, we all piled out of the cars and made our way to the Grafton & Upton equipment sitting silently under the cloudy skies.

The G&U rosters an Alco S-4 (GU #212), and a pair of Bay Colony EMD locomotives – a GP9 (BCLR #1707) and a CF7 (BCLR #2443), and we shot all three that night.  Nick even got up on the steps of the GP9 with a lantern and played conductor for the cameras.  So, without further adieu, here’s the stuff from Saturday night!
