NECR 608 in Willi from last month


Boy have things been hectic.  Now that I’ve got a couple minutes, I figured I’d post up a few shots from back in February of the New England Central in Willimantic.  Nothing earth-shattering, but still at least it’s something for you to check out.

The evening of February 16th I happened across NECR train NERWNE, otherwise known as the old #608 symbol, in Willimantic.  Even though the light was fading pretty fast, I figured a couple quick shots of the train from the foot bridge across the yard was in order.

When I got up on the bridge, they were finishing up the PW interchange north of Bridge Street, so I checked out the angles on the bridge.  Something caught my eye, however – someone pasted a Chinese fortune cookie fortune to the bridge. (if you can’t read it, it says “It is up to you to create your own adventures.”

Some pretty good advice.  So while waiting, I got another shot with the colorful skies overhead

And a few minutes later, 608 made their way over Bridge Street and towards me

And one final going away shot as they cross the Willimantic River, and pass under the Frog Bridge

And that was it for the evening jaunt.  Like I said, nothing earth-shattering, but not total crap either.

Thanks for looking!
