On February 10th the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran something rather unique through Connecticut and Massachusetts – a snow plow. The P&W leased a Russel plow from the Green Mountain Railroad in Vermont to clear some of the snowfall that had plagued southern New England this winter. And I used a vacation day from work [...]
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, [...]
Yep, once again I’m running a bit behind on blog posts. But trust me, I’ve been out there shooting, so you’re in for a flood of photos pretty soon – including plenty of Valley Railroad North Pole Express trains in the dark, a trip out to Thomaston, CT to ride the Railroad Museum of New [...]
Well, all that rain we’ve been getting lately finally turned into some snow overnight and this morning. Granted it wasn’t sticking to the pavement all that much – but that was a good thing. It meant the ground would be somewhat white, and I could safely get there with my front wheel drive Hyundai.
The day after the non-Storm of the Century on the 10th, we had a few inches of snow on the ground. But the sun was out, so I figured it would be worthwhile to head trackside for a few minutes and catch Providence & Worcester NR2 somewhere along the Thames River.
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 [...]
OK, last one to catch up on! This was after the snowstorm – which lasted from Sunday night until Monday night (don’t ask about pictures during the storm – that was a fiasco!). And the sun was shining bright on Tuesday, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to catch the Providence & Worcester speeding [...]
More catching up. Back on March 1st, we had a nice little snowstorm that dumped about 10″ of the white stuff on us. As it was kicking off on Sunday night, I headed out to see how shooting in the snow with the Lumedyne would work out. My target was the idling New England Central [...]
Ahhh, the last one and I’m caught up. This one is from last week, when I got out after a fresh snowfall. I decided to mix things up a bit, and not only shoot at a spot where I haven’t been in a while, but also shoot from the “wrong” side of the tracks. It’ll [...]
OK, finally uploaded a few days worth of stuff from the past few weeks. Here we’re going back to January 28th and one of our many snowstorms (yay!). I was able to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2, an eastbound Amtrak Acela, and an Amtrak Northeast Regional. The P&W was in Groton and New London, [...]
