2012 Photo Recap – October to December 2

Part four of my five post 2012 photo recap – and this one will cover the last three months of the year.  But wait, if this covers the last three months, what will the fifth installment include?  If you recall in my first recap post (here), I mentioned the last one will feature my night […]


2012 Photo Recap – July to September

And here we are, continuing on with the third of five installments recapping my favorite photos from 2012.  My picks for the third quarter of the year include only one from my home state of Connecticut.  The rest were taken in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania – and two involved heritage units.  I guess I gave […]


2012 Photo Recap – April to June

And we continue on with the 2012 photo recap, with this post moving onto the second quarter of 2012.  During this three month span the subjects ranged from the usual railroad photos, to submarines, a new bridge, a locomotive shop and a two-day photo charter.  So does that mean I’ll pick more photos?  Read on […]


2012 Photo Recap – January to March 1

I usually do a monolithic recap of the previous year’s photos, but this year I decided to do things a bit differently – I’ll be splitting it up into five posts.  My main reasoning behind this is I’ve been a bit, um, behind in posting to the blog here.  So to start to make up […]


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 […]


Back in May – Turning 3025 1

Here we go folks – starting to clear out the backlog of posts!  For this first post in quite a while, we’ll go back to the beginning of May 2012 where the Providence & Worcester Railroad took Valley Railroad Mikado No 3025 for a spin around Amtrak’s Old Saybrook wye – which also brought it […]


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 […]


P&W Willimantic Extra 3

On Friday March 30th, the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran an extra from Worcester, MA to Willimantic, CT to handle the interchange traffic to and from the New England Central Railroad.  It turned out to be a very nice day, weather-wise, and with summer hours upon us here at work, I decided to take advantage […]


A hike in the wind

What I’d do for my photography.  On Tuesday I had a small hole in the schedule, so I decided to head out for a nice, nearly mile-long hike along the Thames River to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2.  That was all fine and good, but I neglected to remember that we were coming off […]


March 8th NR-2

Yep, been tied up on many other things lately, so shooting time has been at a premium – never mind keeping the blog updated.  Things have been happening, though, so it’s not like everything is at a complete standstill.  I’ll be making another announcement soon about a gallery exhibit I’m participating in starting later this […]
