Clouds and Color on the 15th 1


Fall in New England brings plenty of cloudy days along with the changing color on the trees.  On Friday the 15th I managed to get out and shoot a bit, catching an Amtrak Acela, Northeast Regional and a work extra over lunch, then a New England Central ethanol extra later in the day.

Over lunch I grabbed my sandwich and headed over to Niantic to meet up with a couple other local railfans – Marc and Vinny – to catch some trains along the Niantic Bay Boardwalk.  While dodging raindrops, we managed to catch a westbound Amtrak Northeast Regional, followed by a westbound Amtrak work extra, and finally an eastbound Amtrak Acela.  Not too bad for a quick stop at the boardwalk – and I worked a nice mile walk into it as well.

After I got out of work, I headed north to see if I could catch a southbound NECR ethanol extra out of Palmer.  I ended up catching them in Stafford Springs after they got pushed over the State Line hill to the north.  I got shots of them at two spots in Stafford, then another in Tolland.  That was it since I had to get down to Norwich ASAP.  Plus the light was fading fast, and I was driving through some pretty heavy downpours.
