2012 Photo Recap – April to June

And we continue on with the 2012 photo recap, with this post moving onto the second quarter of 2012.  During this three month span the subjects ranged from the usual railroad photos, to submarines, a new bridge, a locomotive shop and a two-day photo charter.  So does that mean I’ll pick more photos?  Read on […]


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 […]


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 […]


Flowers, Stars & Trains 3

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 […]


Friday the 13th – PW in the morning, NECR in the afternoon

On Friday the 13th I actually got a bit lucky.  Not only did I catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 in Ledyard and Groton, but I also caught New England Central train 608 heading south with loaded ethanol, and was able to work a couple birds into the shots – got a swan and a […]


Run-o-the-mill on May 3rd

Continuing on the backlog clearing spree, we’ve made it into May.  The first stuff I shot in May was pretty run of the mill stuff – consisting of Providence & Worcester NR-2 at Mill Cove in Ledyard, and the USS Nautilus and through Fairview yard in Groton.  Nothing earth-shattering, but at least there was blue […]


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, […]


OCT14 – NR2 and K667 1

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 […]
