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 […]

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, […]

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.

An experiment at Shaw’s 1

This past Monday evening the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran an empty ethanol extra, symboled K667, down to New London.  As the timing worked out, I was able to get a quick shot of them shoving back into the New England Central yard.  But I did this one a little differently because of the time […]

OCT14 – NR2 and K667 1

Back on the 14th I managed to get out and catch a couple Providence & Worcester trains – NR2 and the empty ethanol K667.  The color was just starting to change down in southeastern Connecticut, and I managed to get some of that color into a couple shots.  I also managed to squeeze K667’s entire […]

9/11 – A morning with my daughter and K667 1

On the morning of September 11th, I asked my daughters if they’d like to come out with me to shoot an ethanol train (OK, I didn’t say “ethanol” since they’re 5 and 7, and have no idea what ethanol is).  The older one said “naw, I want to stay with mommy,” but the little one […]

PW NR2 and NECR (or is it FEC?) 608 with empty cans and a sub

August 27th – a Friday – graced us with some beautiful weather – and a half day at work for me.  That ended up translating into two trains and a submarine that crossed in front of my lens.  The odd thing was the power used on one of the trains – they were quite a […]

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 […]

July 1st – NR-2 and empty moonshine jugs

Almost up to date with the postings.  Here’s some stuff from the first day of July where I caught two Providence & Worcester trains – NR2 in the morning, and K667, an empty unit ethanol train, over lunch.
