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, […]

End of November Stuff

I guess I’m quite a bit behind again. ¬†So to catch things up, I’m just going to do a few posts that’ll bunch things together. ¬†For the first of the house-clearing posts, here’s a few shots from the end of November. ¬†Actually, it’s not¬†everything¬†from the end of November – it’ll be all but one outing. […]

Morning & Evening along the Thames

On the 12th of November, I only planned on heading out one time to shoot – to catch a Providence & Worcester NR-2X carrying 80 empty ethanol cars. ¬†But I really couldn’t pass up the second time – it was something that begged to have a photo taken of it.

Veterans Day Three Way 3

OK, time to start clearing out the backlog. ¬†For this post we’re going back to Veteran’s Day 2010 when I happened to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 returning to and working in Fairview Yard. ¬†And while they were working, a pretty rare thing happened – yeah, the thumbnail pretty much gives it away, but […]

First day of June – PW and Amtrak 3

More of the same – behind a bit on the postings, and slowly catching up. ¬†This one is from this past Tuesday, June 1st. ¬†Managed to get Providence & Worcester train NR-2 at Fairview and later on at Niantic. ¬†Also, while at Niantic, I managed to get a couple Amtraks – including a very late […]

Steel Wheels and Submarines 4

Still playing catch-up, so here’s some stuff from last week. ¬†Another busy week, so my ability to get out was limited. ¬†Making the best of it, I headed up to the USS Nautilus Overlook Park in Groton a couple times, getting some shots of trains and submarines in the same frame.

Reflections and raindrops, and an Apache

Got a bit behind lately with the posts – but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t out shooting at all. ¬†Actually, it was less than usual, but here’s part one of two wrapping up the last week or so of stuff along the Thames River. ¬†This one covers April 30th to May 5th, and was shot […]

Empty ethanol around the horn, along with the FRA, and FEC for flavor 2

Interesting day yesterday. ¬†Things started out kinda ho-hum, and I figured that I wouldn’t get a chance to head out – had a bunch of stuff at work to do, and what really iced the decision was the fact that Providence & Worcester train NR-2 was coming out of Plainfield as light engines. ¬†Oh, well, […]

NR-2X – the Ethanol move

With the recent derailment in Willimantic of the last run of ethanol (see here and here), the next loaded train took a little bit of a longer route to its destination in Providence, RI. ¬†This time instead of heading from Willimantic to Plainfield over the Providence & Worcester’s Willimantic Branch, it headed straight down the […]

Wednesday Morning Clouds and Afternoon Sun

Busy evening last night and busy day today, so this is a little catch up from yesterday’s shooting. ¬†I was able to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 under some different weather conditions. ¬†And throw into the mix Amtrak train 171 at the start of things. ¬†Oh, yeah, and like Mark Twain once said – […]
