The Blizzard that Wasn’t 2

Last week the weather geeks were calling for a foot of wind-driven snow here in Connecticut.  Nothing but doom & gloom from the boob-tube – I even got an email from Stop-n-Shop (grocery store for those who are not familiar with the chain) making sure to remind me to go out and get bread and […]

4 Trains in 90 Minutes 1

This past Monday I had to take the day off for a midday doctor’s appointment.  So I had a few hours to kill in the morning – why sleep when you can be out taking pictures!  My intentions were to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 somewhere between Plainfield and Groton, then head to the […]

Thursday morning mixup

Taking advantage of the beautiful weather on Thursday I headed out for a walk.  I figured for something different I’d head to Stoddard Hill and try and catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 heading south.  Well, for once I didn’t catch NR-2, but I did catch a couple other things…

Oct 23rd Part I – Chasing the P&W with Nick 2

Finally getting through the backlog, and starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  A couple weeks ago I took Thursday the 23rd off from work for a couple reasons.  First, my oldest daughter had a half day from school, and the youngest one had a doctor’s appointment.  Since my wife hasn’t […]

P&W NR-2, a reflection, and a cutter

Today is graduation day at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT, so the place has been hopping. From increased security around President Bush’s visit to the commenecement ceremonies, to quite a few more boats in the Thames River just above the Gold Star Bridge. Of course, as usual, the train keeps […]

It’s raining, it’s pouring, NR-2’s rolling

Well, I had to come into work late today – the kids had a dentist appointment – so there was no time for my usual walk. Plus it was raining this morning – not exactly ideal walking conditions. But on my way over after the appointment (the girls did great – no cavities!) I did […]

P&W NR-2 at MP7

Well, for today’s walk I decided to head back up to the MP7 area in Ledyard, stretching my legs, as well as shooting Providence & Worcester train NR-2. The weather was warm, but there was a thin veil of high clouds, and a stiff breeze, so the reflection shots off of the little tidal pool […]

Sperry Rail, NECR 610 and P&W NR-2 2

With temperatures in the mid 60s, and sunny blue skies, I couldn’t pass up a walk today. So I headed for Erickson Park in Ledyard again, as usual, with full intentions of not only doing my laps around the park, but also shooting Providence & Worcester train NR-2 heading south along Mill Cove. A few […]
