South Windham

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, […]

Labor Day NR4X

Still getting through the backlog of stuff.  Now we’re up to last Monday – Labor Day – where we did a couple family chases.  Both were quite spur of the moment, but both were not successful.  On the other hand, without the failure, the successful one probably would not have happened.

A week’s worth – Amtrak, NECR, PW, FEC and ethanol

Continuing on the backlog here – but instead of what I would normally do and make one post for each “outing,” instead I’m putting together one massive post with a week’s full of shots in it.  Basically taking care of pretty much the entire backlog in one fell swoop.  In this catch-all post, you’ll see […]

The Sunday Chase – Freight, Frogs & Sand 4

I wasn’t planning on doing any chasing this weekend – we had a busy one planned.  Saturday we spent the day in New York at my cousin’s graduation party, and Sunday was to be a day of working around the house – most notably rototilling the garden.  Of course, plans usually change – and the Sunday plans […]

Re-railed derails 4

In the aftermath of the P&W derailment in South Windham last week, contractors had emptied out and rerailed the cars that came off the tracks.  The three that ended up on their sides/tops, were placed on the spur track near Route 203 in South Windham.  On my way up to UConn, I took a swing […]

Day and Night on the P&W and a Virginia 5

Well, I’ll be doing things a little out of order here.  I’ve got some shots from the last week or two that I need to process and get online, but in the meantime, I’ve got some stuff from yesterday that’s ready to go.  So that’s what you get to look at today…trust me, it’s worth […]

3/1 – NECR at Night

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 […]

Out again with Nick at Nite

No, I’m not talking about Nickelodeon’s nighttime show lineup, but rather out shooting with fellow rail photographer Nick Palazini.  Nick & I are working on a joint project for a magazine, and needed to go over some images on Sunday night.  So after we were done, we figured we’d brave the weather (cold, windy with […]

NECR at Night 3

I had to run a couple errands tonight in Willimantic, so on my way home, I swung by the New England Central base of operations here in southeastern Connecticut – South Windham.  Of course, while there, I took a few pictures of a NECR train waiting for a fresh crew on Monday.

A couple days of P&W and NECR 2

Playing a bit of catch-up here.  These shots are from last week – the 15th and 16th, of Providence & Worcester train NR-2 in Ledyard, Groton and New London, and a tied down New England Central train NERWNE in South Windham.
