NR-2 in 2 spots and the NECR in the background


I figured today would be a good one to take advantage of the blue skies and sunshine before the weather hit the shitter for the rest of the week.  So I did my usual, and headed up to Erickson Park in Ledyard in hopes of catching Providence & Worcester train NR-2 while getting my walk in.  Well, I did get them, and a bonus as well…

It’s getting kinda late, and my beer is empty, so I’ll be brief.  I ended up catching NECR NERWNE heading north across the river a few moments before NR-2 appeared at the top of Mill Cove.  Soooo close for a cross-river meet, and I was in the right position to get both in the same frame.  Oh, well.  After that I shot NR-2 rolling along the cove, and used a few docked boats in a couple shots as well.  Then after that it was off to the races to get ahead of them south of the USS Nautilus where I rattled off a few more shots.  With those in the bag, it was time to head back to the office for the day.  Now with the overview done, here’s the photos:
