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 shoot all that much lately, but here’s the first installment of the backlog – from back on July 20th.

On a hot July morning, I managed to head out for a bit and catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 heading south along the Thames River.  And while waiting in New London, I also bagged an Amtrak Northeast Regional crossing Shaw’s Cove, headed westbound.  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stick around for NR-2s arrival at Shaw’s Cove – I had a meeting coming up, so I left without shooting them at the swing bridge.  Nothing out of the ordinary here, but it’s something to look at.
