My Top 12 of ’13

First off, I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.  Hopefully everyone had a safe and joyous Christmas and holiday season.  And to kick off the new year, I figured I’d pull together a recap of my 2013 photographic ramblings along the rails of the northeast – well, one favorite from each […]

Into the Darkness

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 […]


Another angle bites the dust

On the 17th of May I was able to get out for a few minutes to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 over lunch.  It was a quick trip out, and I was only able to catch them at a couple spots.  But while out, I noticed one of my favorite angles will soon be […]


Cinco de Mayo – NR2 and a tamper

Getting closer to being caught up – this post has shots from Cinco de Mayo, where I managed to get out for a brief amount of time and shoot Providence & Worcester train NR-2 in New London.  Nothing spectacular, but I did get a shot of an Amtrak tamper sitting on the sidelines.


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 […]


2011 Calendar – Steel Wheels & Submarines

It’s that time of year again – the 2011 calendar is ready!  This year’s calendar is titled “Steel Wheels and Submarines” and features 13 of my all color photos photos taken along the Thames River in southeastern Connecticut of the NECR, P&W, Amtrak and FEC (yes, I said FEC). I’m putting it out a bit earlier than I did […]


Amtrak and Ethanol at Shaw’s Cove

Back on the first of October I took off a little early from work – it was a Friday, and I was pretty caught up at work.  The question was whether I should head home, or maybe head out for some pictures despite the crappy weather (heavy rain during the day, and the possibility of […]
