Florida East Coast Railway


Down here on the south end of the New England Central Railroad, we’ve had a visitor from down south working on the Montville switcher job for the past week or so.  One of the four Florida East Coast locomotives has been assigned the duties on train NERWNE recently.  Last Friday I had a chance to […]

A week’s worth – Amtrak, NECR, PW, FEC and ethanol

Continuing on the backlog here – but instead of what I would normally do and make one post for each “outing,” instead I’m putting together one massive post with a week’s full of shots in it.  Basically taking care of pretty much the entire backlog in one fell swoop.  In this catch-all post, you’ll see […]

Quick stop in Palmer – NECR, Amtrak, CSX & FEC

July 2nd was a work holiday for us, starting out a four day weekend.  I had some things to do in the morning, but with that stuff done, I headed out for a bit to shoot, taking advantage of the nice weather.  Initially I had set my sights on shooting NECR train NERWNE somewhere between […]

Midnight Moonshine Extra 6

Last Friday night the last cut of 40 ethanol cars made their way into Palmer, MA on the New England Central Railroad where a fresh crew picked them up for the trip south to New London, CT (for a look back at the previous 40 cars, click here and here).  The Providence & Worcester Railroad […]

Wednesday Day and Night on the NECR 3

Slowly getting back up to speed with the posts here.  Work is still hectic, but after work on Wednesday I managed to get out and catch a little New England Central Railroad action in the form of an ethanol extra.  Then later that evening, I joined a couple friends in Willimantic to shoot the NECR […]

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, […]

Last week in pictures – NECR, PW, Amtrak & FEC day and night 5

So I managed to get out a few times last week – including one night jaunt shooting both the Providence & Worcester and New England Central (both sporting “foreign” power).  Other stuff from the week was the P&W and NECR in daylight – including an ethanol move, along with a couple Shore Line Amtrak runs.

A couple slide scans – Guilford & FEC 2

I didn’t get a chance to head out today – kinda swamped at work.  So instead of not posting anything, I took a break from the Olympics and scanned a couple slides in.  At least we’ll keep things somewhat fresh here…granted the pictures are at least 6 years old…

The Anti-Snowbirds 8

Snowbirds – the term used for people who live here in the north and “migrate” south to Florida in the winters.  As some of you may know, a pair of Florida East Coast Railway GP40s have been leased to the New England Central Railroad, and are making their way up here from their warm home […]

Some 2003 & 2004 Slide Scans

Been a bit busy lately – I did manage to get out on Monday morning for a bit and catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2, but I haven’t gotten around to processing the images yet (pretty run-of-the-mill stuff, so nothing earth shattering).  In the meantime, here’s a trio of slide scans from a few years […]
