Lightning, the CP and a blast furnace in the rain

My final outing on my New Jersey business trip (part one – part two) brought me once again into the Keystone State.  But this time things didn’t go as smoothly, train wise.  But overall, I think it worked out rather well, despite not catching a single train moving in my 3 or so hours in […]


Garden and Keystone on the 13th of September

On the second day of my New Jersey work trip, I got out a couple times to shoot – first at sunrise, and then after sunset.  The shots at sunrise were in the Garden State, and the ones in the dark were 60 some odd miles to the west in the Keystone State – both […]


September 12th in New Jersey

Once again I had to make a work trip to New Jersey the week of September 12th, and I did manage to get a little shooting in while I was there – both day and night (yes, the Lumedynes came along for the ride as well).  The first day, before checking into the hotel, I […]


9/9 – a PanAm birthday 3

Digging back into May – NECR 608, ethanol and bruises 2

Well, here’s another batch of photos I never posted.  Actually, it was for good reason – it involves a bit of personal injury (both to my body and ego), flying cameras, as well as the temporary loss of my glasses.  But the important thing is this – despite risking life & limb (and cameras), I […]


July 26th NR-2 – EMDs in the lead

The next installment of the backlog clearing is from the 26th of July, when I caught a pretty good sized Providence & Worcester train NR-2 at a couple spots along the Thames River.  The only remarkable thing about this train – despite the length – is that the lead power was a pair of EMD […]


Way back in July – P&W NR-2 and Amtrak

Between family commitments, a bout with a flu-like bug (putting me in bed for 4 days), and Hurricane Irene’s power outage (6 days for us), I’ve once again fallen a bit behind on the old Blog here.  But never fear, it’s time to catch up on the posts.  Granted, I haven’t had a chance to […]
