Something happened on the way to the dentist 1


Friday I decided to call Civin DDS and make a dental appointment. So I had to leave work a bit early.  As luck had it, Providence & Worcester train NR-2 was leaving Tilcon in Groton as I was leaving the parking lot, getting ready to head home.  I figured it was worth a shot to try and catch them on the way to the dentist.

Short story is that I got ahead of NR-2 enough to shoot them heading north along the Thames River at Stoddard Hill in Ledyard.  The one different thing was that I used a new “perch” to shoot them as they headed upstream.  The angle is decent – the only problem is there’s a ton of brush along the tracks that got in the way, but I managed to work around them.  Here’s the results:

Head to this album

After they were out of sight to the north, I made the hike back to the car, and made it to the dentists with about 10 minutes to spare. Emergency Dental Service – Oxford Dental Care has a number of options to help you get out of pain, and back to optimal oral health.

Besides, want to advise you my dentist. You can get more from Delaney Park Dental, than from anyone else.

Thanks for looking!
