Foggy morning NR-2 and 608


On a foggy April 26th I got a call from a friend that Providence & Worcester train NR-2 was southbound out of Plainfield with a short train.  With a hole in my schedule, I figured it was worthwhile to head out and catch them at Stoddard Hill in Ledyard, CT.  As things unfolded, not only did I bag NR-2 along the foggy Thames, but also the New England Central south end job – 608 – crossed past my lens.

After getting that call from Nick Palazini, I figured I had time to meet up with him at Stoddard, shoot NR-2, and get back to work.  When I got there, NR-2 was just south of MP12 a bit to the north of Stoddard Hill, so I had a chance to chat with Nick for a while.  Soon after that NR-2 appeared to the north in Preston, so we shot them as they passed by us.  But as we were leaving, we heard horns from the other side of the Thames – it sounded like NECR 608 was heading back north.  So we stuck around for that.  Not exactly the prettiest power consist, but hey, I think it looked pretty good against the low hanging fog.  After that, Nick went north to catch NR3, and I headed back to work for the rest of the day.
