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

Getting back into the swing of things… 1

Hey everyone!  Yep, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here on the old blog.  But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting – just the opposite!  Granted, I’m not out every day like I have been in the past – life gets in the way much too easily these days – but […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 issue of TRAINS and Railfan & Railroad magazines 2

Now that they’ve started to hit subscribers’ mailboxes, I figured a note here was in order.  I’ve got two articles appearing in the March 2012 issues of the two largest railroad magazines.  First is a short piece and a photo in TRAINS as a part of their Funky Freights feature about some of the shipments […]


January 2012 Railfan & Railroad Magazine 1

Just a quick note – be sure to pick up the January 2012 issue of Railfan and Railroad magazine.  I’ve got a four page feature on the Providence & Worcester Railroad in the issue.  In addition to that, they’ve put together a small gallery of P&W shots that didn’t make it into the story that’s […]

Foggy, cloudy morning

This past Monday started out with a pretty heavy fog hanging over most of the Thames River valley in southeast – making for some nice photo possibilities.  But by the time Providence & Worcester train NR-2 made their way south, the fog usually lifts and is out of the picture, so to speak.  At least on […]


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 […]
