Daddy-Daughter night – North Pole Express style

November 15, 2013 marked the start of the North Pole Express season at the Valley Railroad/Essex Steam Train in Essex, Connecticut.  And with the after-dark departures, spots in the towns of Essex, Deep River and Chester have been on my list of sites to photograph the steam train passing through the night.  This year, I […]

Two Weeks in NJ – Week 2

Bending Gravity at the Library

Dinner on the Rails

 The Valley Railroad/Essex Steam Train in Essex, Connecticut is famous for their steam powered excursion trains along the Connecticut River (see some of my other posts on the Valley RR here).  But they also offer other types of rail excursions – most as limited run specials like the Circus Train and Eagle Flyer.  But there is […]
