Goss Cove


Foggy, cloudy morning

This past Monday started out with a pretty heavy fog hanging over most of the Thames River valley in southeast – making for some nice photo possibilities.  But by the time Providence & Worcester train NR-2 made their way south, the fog usually lifts and is out of the picture, so to speak.  At least on […]


July 26th NR-2 – EMDs in the lead

The next installment of the backlog clearing is from the 26th of July, when I caught a pretty good sized Providence & Worcester train NR-2 at a couple spots along the Thames River.  The only remarkable thing about this train – despite the length – is that the lead power was a pair of EMD […]


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 […]


Pumpkins along the Thames 1

Going back a little bit for this post, filling in some of the gaps I didn’t manage to get out on the site.  This was a quick trip I took one morning to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 heading south through Groton, CT with some special power in the consist.  Yep, as you can […]


Seis de Mayo – NR2 and its reflection

Check off another one from the backlog – this time from the sixth of May.  Getting closer to this week!  Another quick one with a couple stops, but both spots I shot at gave up some really nice reflections of the passing train!


Run-o-the-mill on May 3rd

Continuing on the backlog clearing spree, we’ve made it into May.  The first stuff I shot in May was pretty run of the mill stuff – consisting of Providence & Worcester NR-2 at Mill Cove in Ledyard, and the USS Nautilus and through Fairview yard in Groton.  Nothing earth-shattering, but at least there was blue […]


Empty cans along the Thames 2

Going back a bit in time here – starting to catch up on past photos that haven’t made it to the site yet.  This set is from back on April 21, 2011 of Providence & Worcester train K667 – a unit empty ethanol train – as they made their way down the east bank of […]


Trackside #160 – Trees

The newest edition of TRAINS magazine’s online contest – Trackside with TRAINS – is now live!  This edition’s theme was “trees” and I picked a shot of Providence & Worcester train NR-2 framed by the trees of Goss Cove in Groton, CT.  And for those of you who aren’t familiar with Goss Cove, the USS […]


Freight, cargo, passengers and the Army

A couple weeks back on my way into work, I noticed a freighter sitting at the New London State Pier getting ready to unload.  I figured it was worth a shot to try and get out and get a few shots of the ship a little later that morning – it’s been a while since […]
