Special Valley RR 3025 Prints 1

In the spirit of the holiday season, I’ve decided to do something a bit different.  I’ve put together a poster featuring one of my night shots of the Valley Railroad’s newest addition to their roster – former Knox & Kane Chinese built SY 2-8-2, now dressed up to look like a New Haven J-1, and […]

January 2012 Railfan & Railroad Magazine 1

Just a quick note – be sure to pick up the January 2012 issue of Railfan and Railroad magazine.  I’ve got a four page feature on the Providence & Worcester Railroad in the issue.  In addition to that, they’ve put together a small gallery of P&W shots that didn’t make it into the story that’s […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.  I know I have plenty to be thankful for – most of all my family.  And this year’s Thanksgiving is a bit more special – it’s also my daughter Katina’s 9th birthday! On the blog side of things – I know it’s been a while […]

Mass Bay RRE Fall Circle Tour on the P&W 2

Continuing with the “passenger extra on the Providence & Worcester Railroad” theme (see yesterday’s post), I managed to photograph the Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts’ Fall Circle Tour which runs on the P&W every mid-October.  The train makes a big circle through southeastern New England – starting in Worcester, MA, continuing southeast to Providence, RI, then […]

Office Car Special on the Providence & Worcester 12

Going a bit out of order with today’s post.  On October 19, 2011 the member railroads of the Green Mountain Gateway – Canadian Pacific, Vermont Rail System, New England Central and Providence & Worcester – ran an office car special between Rutland, VT and Worcester, MA.  The train, carrying VIPs from all the member railroads, […]

8th Annual CERM Night Photo Shoot

Over the past seven years, the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic has hosted a number of photographers from around the northeastern region for a night shoot.  This year was no different – both in the fact that the night shoot happened, but also that the event was very well attended, and sold out again. […]

Foggy, cloudy morning

This past Monday started out with a pretty heavy fog hanging over most of the Thames River valley in southeast – making for some nice photo possibilities.  But by the time Providence & Worcester train NR-2 made their way south, the fog usually lifts and is out of the picture, so to speak.  At least on […]

Visiting Outer Space

No, there’s no rockets involved here – I stayed on terra firma.  But I did go to a place called The Outer Space in Hamden, CT.  Good friend Steve Rodgers (of Mighty Purple fame) recently opened a bar in Hamden next door to his live music/coffee house The Space, and I decided to head down […]

Hiking along the Thames 3

Last week I had a chance to not only get out and shoot for a bit, but I also worked a nice 1.5 mile hike in as well.  The only downside to that is I only got to shoot from one location.  But that’s OK – I think things worked out just fine at that […]
