June 14-24 – PW & Amtrak


Yep, playing catchup once again.  So here’s one post with a bunch of pictures taken between June 14th and the 24th around southeastern Connecticut.  I’ll spare the words, and just fire off the pictures.  OK, there will be a few words…

Here’s a series of shots taken on five different mornings, mostly of Providence & Worcester train NR-2, with a single westbound Acela stuck in the middle.  I also worked some boats into a few shots – both civilian and military.  Also stuck in the middle of it all is some chalk drawings I picked out on a couple cars.  OK, enough of that word stuff – here’s the pictures.
