Some P&W and Amtrak from last week

As seems to be the recent norm for me, I’m running a bit behind on my postings.  I did manage to get out a few times last week, and caught some Providence & Worcester and Amtrak action along the Thames River.  So we’ll keep this brief and just let you enjoy the photos.

I’ll keep the mindless blather to a minimum, and just put the photos out there.  So here they are!
