A couple stops in Yantic 1

OK, I know, I’m behind on my posts.  But I’m making it a point to catch up (thanks Rich!) and get up to date – trust me, the silence here doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting.  To the contrary, I’ve actually been able to get out a surprising number of times.  And to start […]


January 2011 Recap

Holy crap does time fly when you’re doing nothing but shoveling snow.  Yep, we’ve been inundated with snow the past month or so here in the Northeast, and I have next to no photos to show for it!  But I did manage to get out a few times to shoot.  So instead of doing each one individually, […]


Morning and Evening NECR with FEC

Last week on the first of November I managed to catch New England Central train NERWNE (or #608 going by the old symbol) at a couple spots in southeastern Connecticut – first was with their usual freight in the late morning through Uncasville, and another with some ethanol in the evening light of Norwich bound […]


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 […]


Two trains on the NECR 2

On the day after my birthday, September 10th, I headed out in the morning for a bit to shoot a little, despite the cloudy weather.  But as usual, I never let the weather conditions discourage me from shooting, and in fact, I think it helped in one case.


Ssshhhhhh….PW Extra 2

On September 7th, the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran an extra from Worcester, MA down to Groton, CT, and I managed to photograph it between Central Village and Groton, while running into a couple other photographers along the way.  This is going to be one of the more vague posts, keeping some of the particulars […]


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 […]


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.
