Monthly Archives: November 2010


The only other time I got to get out and shoot in New Jersey was on the 17th.  I managed to get a few shots in at Bound Brook before heading to the office, then after work I ventured out to Macungie, PA to shoot some night action.  As things turned out, there wasn’t all […]

Hopewell Station and the Police 1

The week of November 15th I was in New Jersey again for work, and I managed to do a bit of shooting while there.  Not as much as usual, but I did manage to kill a few pixels in the Garden State.  The first night I also met up with another photographer in Hopewell, NJ […]

Morning & Evening along the Thames

On the 12th of November, I only planned on heading out one time to shoot – to catch a Providence & Worcester NR-2X carrying 80 empty ethanol cars.  But I really couldn’t pass up the second time – it was something that begged to have a photo taken of it.

Veterans Day Three Way 3

OK, time to start clearing out the backlog.  For this post we’re going back to Veteran’s Day 2010 when I happened to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 returning to and working in Fairview Yard.  And while they were working, a pretty rare thing happened – yeah, the thumbnail pretty much gives it away, but […]

Happy Thanksgiving! 2

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving here in the US, and to everyone else outside the States, happy Thursday! I’ve got a bunch of photos from the last few weeks to post, so stay tuned for a slew of updates.  Stuff that’ll be posted include P&W, NECR, ethanol, Norfolk Southern, CSX […]

The Willimantic Whoopsie

On Tuesday the 9th, unfortunately New England Central train 610 put some loaded ethanol cars on the ground in Willimantic yard.  With a sick daughter home from school, and Jill working, I couldn’t get out to photograph it.  But later in the evening I did get a chance to head out and get a few night shots […]

An experiment at Shaw’s 1

This past Monday evening the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran an empty ethanol extra, symboled K667, down to New London.  As the timing worked out, I was able to get a quick shot of them shoving back into the New England Central yard.  But I did this one a little differently because of the time […]

The Houssy and Keystone Arch Trail

On Saturday November 6th we decided to take a ride to nowhere – no plans, no objective, just the four of us and a full tank of gas.  We figured we’d head northwest – the weather was supposed to be nicer out that way.  But even if it wasn’t we’d be out for a nice […]

FEC/PW/GMTX on the NECR with Ethanol

Last Friday another 40 loaded ethanol tanks made their way south out of Willimantic towards New London on the New England Central Railroad.  I managed to get a few shots of them in Montville and New London.  The only thing is you’d never know whose railroad it was judging by the locomotives leading the train.
