Amtrak


Two trains of empty cans

Way back on June 8th I was able to get out and shoot a bit in the morning.  I intented to duck out and shoot Providence & Worcester train NR-2 along the Thames River.  But as things worked out, I ended up catching two P&W jobs in the Groton/New London area – both carrying empty […]


A bunch from June 2

Been a little while since I’ve posted anything from the railroad front.  So to start things flowing again, I figured I’d prime the pump – so to speak – with a bunch of shots from June.  Included here are a couple day’s worth of shots – one of Providence & Worcester train NR-2 and the […]


Flowers, Stars & Trains 3

Last Friday was a pretty good day, photographically speaking.  I ended up taking the day off from work for a couple reasons – first, later in the evening I was putting on a presentation about the railroads along the Thames River for the Northeast Prototype Modeler’s Meet out in Collinsville, CT (BTW, if you’re a […]


Lunch at Saybrook

Back on May 18th, I met up with a few other fans at the Old Saybrook Amtrak station over lunch for a little shooting & conversation.  Despite the cloudy weather (which never really bothered me), it was a good lunch hour of shooting from the station platforms.  And of course, it was nice catching up […]


Another angle bites the dust

On the 17th of May I was able to get out for a few minutes to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 over lunch.  It was a quick trip out, and I was only able to catch them at a couple spots.  But while out, I noticed one of my favorite angles will soon be […]


Late morning at NAN

Back on May 10th, the weather was pretty good – some sun mixed with clouds – so I was considering going out and shooting a bit.  But with some early morning meetings, I thought I couldn’t make it.  Then I got a message that Amtrak had parked a pair of GP38s on the Ring’s End […]


Cinco de Mayo – NR2 and a tamper

Getting closer to being caught up – this post has shots from Cinco de Mayo, where I managed to get out for a brief amount of time and shoot Providence & Worcester train NR-2 in New London.  Nothing spectacular, but I did get a shot of an Amtrak tamper sitting on the sidelines.


January 2011 Recap

Holy crap does time fly when you’re doing nothing but shoveling snow.  Yep, we’ve been inundated with snow the past month or so here in the Northeast, and I have next to no photos to show for it!  But I did manage to get out a few times to shoot.  So instead of doing each one individually, […]


Start of December Stuff

Next up is a chunk of photos from the first half of December, which include Amtrak, Providence & Worcester, ethanol, a Sperry Rail Car, a couple C-130s and a pair of fast attack submarines – a Virginia and Los Angeles class.  Nice variety for the first half of the month.  And like the previous post, […]
