A couple shots across the river

Kind of a hectic day today, but I managed to get out for a short spell this morning.  Of course, things didn’t go exactly as planned – no Providence & Worcester action, but I did manage to get the New England Central across the river as they headed north through Montville.

I headed up to Mill Cove this morning to hopefully catch P&W NR-2 heading south, but apparently that mill fire up in Norwich (here’s the story at the Norwich Bulletin) flared up again today, so that delayed the P&W a bit.  But before leaving I heard NECR train NERWNE head north out of New London, so I figured it would be worthwhile to hang around for a couple minutes and shoot a couple frames of them across the river.

A few minutes later, NERWNE came into view, and I got a couple shots of them – both passing by houses and the emerging greenery along the Thames River.

Head to this album

And that was it – by that time, NR-2 was still north of the fire scene, and I was short on time.  So I packed it in and headed back to the office.

Thanks for looking!

    Tom, I enjoyed this view of the NECR across the river. especially the on with the big house behind. What is the ornamental A on the shoreline for?

    • Thanks Don!

      That A is actually an H – for Harvard. The Harvard Boat House is right across the river from that H, just north of where I’m standing (at Red Top on the P&W, incidentally). From time to time Yale will paint a blue & white Y over the H on that rock – their boat house is to the north of there.
