First time with the 4005

The Providence & Worcester Railroad recently acquired three former Burlington Northern Santa Fe GE B40-8W locomotives.  One of those – now numbered P&W 4005 – has recently received a new paint job, putting the former warbonnet into P&W chocolate and orange.  And after one other trip down this way, I got a chance to photograph the widecab [...]

July 26th NR-2 – EMDs in the lead

The next installment of the backlog clearing is from the 26th of July, when I caught a pretty good sized Providence & Worcester train NR-2 at a couple spots along the Thames River.  The only remarkable thing about this train – despite the length – is that the lead power was a pair of EMD [...]

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 [...]

Flowers, Stars & Trains

Last Friday was a pretty good day, photographically speaking.  I ended up taking the day off from work for a couple reasons – first, later in the evening I was putting on a presentation about the railroads along the Thames River for the Northeast Prototype Modeler’s Meet out in Collinsville, CT (BTW, if you’re a [...]

Foggy morning NR-2 and 608

On a foggy April 26th I got a call from a friend that Providence & Worcester train NR-2 was southbound out of Plainfield with a short train.  With a hole in my schedule, I figured it was worthwhile to head out and catch them at Stoddard Hill in Ledyard, CT.  As things unfolded, not only [...]

Lunch with NR2 and NR3

Last Monday I had to head out for lunch, and as things worked out I managed to catch a couple Providence & Worcester trains.  Not that the first was really planned out, but the second was caught completely by chance.

OCT14 – NR2 and K667

Back on the 14th I managed to get out and catch a couple Providence & Worcester trains – NR2 and the empty ethanol K667.  The color was just starting to change down in southeastern Connecticut, and I managed to get some of that color into a couple shots.  I also managed to squeeze K667’s entire [...]

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 [...]

Three days in September

Once again playing catchup with the posts – at least I’m only a couple weeks behind…  In this one I’m going to roll three days into one post – they’re not consecutive days, but rather are geographically connected.  And, yes, I’ll be brief on the words…

July 1st – NR-2 and empty moonshine jugs

Almost up to date with the postings.  Here’s some stuff from the first day of July where I caught two Providence & Worcester trains – NR2 in the morning, and K667, an empty unit ethanol train, over lunch.
