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 […]


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 […]


A bunch from June 2

Been a little while since I’ve posted anything from the railroad front.  So to start things flowing again, I figured I’d prime the pump – so to speak – with a bunch of shots from June.  Included here are a couple day’s worth of shots – one of Providence & Worcester train NR-2 and the […]


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 […]


Empty cans along the Thames 2

Going back a bit in time here – starting to catch up on past photos that haven’t made it to the site yet.  This set is from back on April 21, 2011 of Providence & Worcester train K667 – a unit empty ethanol train – as they made their way down the east bank of […]
