Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving here in the US, and to everyone else outside the States, happy Thursday!

I’ve got a bunch of photos from the last few weeks to post, so stay tuned for a slew of updates.  Stuff that’ll be posted include P&W, NECR, ethanol, Norfolk Southern, CSX […]

Sick day = Disaster on the Coastliner

Today I’m home sick (since Friday – yech), but I’m actually awake for the most part today.  So while flipping through the channels, I came across a movie that sounded like it had something to do with railroading – Disaster on the Coastliner (IMDB info here).  Curious, I left it on there and watched for […]

Somewhat Geeky Post – Photoshop Lightroom 3 Beta 2

I got a chance to download and play with the latest beta of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 today.  Let me start out by saying that I absolutely love Lightroom – I’ve been using it since v1.0 Beta (and even before that I was using Pixmantec RawShooter Pro before Adobe purchased them), and it’s essentially a […]


As quite a few of you may know, I’m a member and volunteer at the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT.  Well, last night (11/3/09) the museum was broken into and quite heavily vandalized.  Click here for the story, including some photos of the damage, from the Hartford Courant.  Shit like this just makes […]

Blast from the Past

OK, it’s not what you think it is.  I dug up a photo from back in 1996, but it has nothing to do with railroading, or even my photography.


Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!  This year my wife & daughters came up with a downright unique Father’s Day gift for me.  Nope, not a tie or a coffee mug.  But it is a shirt – but it’s not just any shirt.  They came up with a pretty cool design on […]

2009 WPC Gallery Exhibit

Just a quick note that I’m participating in the 2009 Windham Photo Club’s Gallery Exhibit, which is free and open to the public.  I’ve got 10 photos hanging amongst about 200 from various club members.  I’ll be sitting on Saturday July 11th from 12-2PM, but if you want to arrange a time to come down, […]

Some Pennsy Stuff

For you Pennsy fans out there some of the relics from the Pennsylvania Railroad era still standing around in the 21st century.

English 101

Sure, I’ve been out of school for a while, and apparently I’ve forgotten some of my lessons.  Blog reader Bob Hassett informed me of the error in my ways at the CERM meeting last night.  Since I only have two daughters, the way I have referred to them in some of my posts is incorrect.


Rest In Peace Mandy

Yesterday was a very difficult day for us at home.  We had to say goodbye to a long time part of the family.  Our quarter horse, Mandy, has been sick the past month or so, and she wasn’t making any progress, so we had a tough decision to make.  At nearly 31 years old, we […]
