The Lost Post from August


Looking at the list of photos on the web gallery here – something struck me as odd.  I had no photos posted from the month of August.  So I fired up Lightroom to see what I shot in the eighth month of the year, and much to my surprise, I only got out a couple times to shoot.  Actually, there was only one set of photos I can post to the web – the others are for a publication project, so I’m keeping those under wraps for now.  And what I did shoot, well, was pretty ordinary.  But I figured, what the hell – I’ll post ’em.

On the afternoon of August 2nd, I came across New England Central train 608 working in Franklin.  Since it was a nice sunny day, I stopped for a bit and killed a few pixels.  About the only out of the ordinary thing was the train had the TPW GP40 widecab for power – otherwise it was a pretty nondescript afternoon.  Chatted with the crew for a bit before they headed south as light engines to wrap up their day.
