Plow on the P&W

On February 10th the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran something rather unique through Connecticut and Massachusetts – a snow plow.  The P&W leased a Russel plow from the Green Mountain Railroad in Vermont to clear some of the snowfall that had plagued southern New England this winter.  And I used a vacation day from work to chase the train along two of the P&W’s lines, covering about 60 miles of the railroad.

The crew of P&W train NR-2, instead of doing their usual work along Connecticut’s shore between Groton and New Haven, had the honor of running the (to my knowledge) only plow over the P&W in its history.  On this day the plow would cover the Willimantic and Norwich Branches, starting in Willimantic, CT and ending in Worcester, MA. I managed to photograph them  in a number of towns through eastern Connecticut and southern Massachusetts, and met up with a few fellow photographers along the way (Tom, Steve & Rich).  It was a nice sunny day, which made some of the northbound shots between Plainfield, CT and Worcester a bit challenging, but it ended up being a great day overall.  OK, enough of that, here’s the snow throwing adventures!

    Tom:

    Definitely some keepers in this batch. Day looked as if it was “picture perfect” for those of us with a camera.

    Tom, thanks for this series too. Was the plow operator really from P&W or did he come with the plow? Maybe a P&W man would know better the location of obstacles under the snow.

    Very cool. your photos start out by The Scotland Dam in Scotland CT. I know cause I’m always down there waiting for the train to pass, sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t. I like to see these tracks back open me and my dad used to walk them when they were exempt.
