Getting back into the swing of things… 1

Hey everyone!  Yep, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here on the old blog.  But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting – just the opposite!  Granted, I’m not out every day like I have been in the past – life gets in the way much too easily these days – but […]


A hike, a cliff and two trains

Continuing on the posts from the past, we’ll go back another month – to the start of April 2012 where I took a hike up to Poquetanuck Cove on the Preston/Ledyard town line.  It was a nice day, and I could not only enjoy a nice walk along the river, but also sit on the […]


Two trains in one shot 1

Managed to find a little time for a walk this morning, so I decided to head up to Poquetanuck Cove again on the Preston/Ledyard line and get a mile of walking in.  It was a little breezy, but not as windy as it was last week (here’s that post), so I could actually feel my […]


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 […]


First time with the 4005

The Providence & Worcester Railroad recently acquired three former Burlington Northern Santa Fe GE B40-8W locomotives.  One of those – now numbered P&W 4005 – has recently received a new paint job, putting the former warbonnet into P&W chocolate and orange.  And after one other trip down this way, I got a chance to photograph the widecab […]


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 […]


Way back in July – P&W NR-2 and Amtrak

Between family commitments, a bout with a flu-like bug (putting me in bed for 4 days), and Hurricane Irene’s power outage (6 days for us), I’ve once again fallen a bit behind on the old Blog here.  But never fear, it’s time to catch up on the posts.  Granted, I haven’t had a chance to […]


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 […]
