P&W Willimantic Extra 3

On Friday March 30th, the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran an extra from Worcester, MA to Willimantic, CT to handle the interchange traffic to and from the New England Central Railroad.  It turned out to be a very nice day, weather-wise, and with summer hours upon us here at work, I decided to take advantage […]

The Willimantic Whoopsie

On Tuesday the 9th, unfortunately New England Central train 610 put some loaded ethanol cars on the ground in Willimantic yard.  With a sick daughter home from school, and Jill working, I couldn’t get out to photograph it.  But later in the evening I did get a chance to head out and get a few night shots […]
