Jamming on a Wednesday Night

Over the past couple months, The Lucky Frog in Willimantic, CT – a restaurant and bar – has started up an open jam session on Wednesday nights.  With the venue 5 minutes from home, I managed to make it out to a few of the jam nights to snap a few frames, as well as [...]

P&W Willimantic Extra

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 [...]

8th Annual CERM Night Photo Shoot

Over the past seven years, the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic has hosted a number of photographers from around the northeastern region for a night shoot.  This year was no different – both in the fact that the night shoot happened, but also that the event was very well attended, and sold out again. [...]

Camera Club Night Shoot at CERM

As most of you know the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT does an annual night photo shoot, which usually occurs in late September.  But the night came alive in Willimantic on May 14th – well before the usual time for the shoot.  That Saturday night, the museum hosted the Shooters Gallery Photography Group, [...]

Willimantic Round Trip

Almost a month ago I was out and about on a sunny Saturday.  Jill and the girls were out at a birthday party, and I was running errands around Willimantic.  But when the scanner lit up on the NECR channel, plans started to change.  But not entirely right away…

NECR 608 in Willi from last month

Boy have things been hectic.  Now that I’ve got a couple minutes, I figured I’d post up a few shots from back in February of the New England Central in Willimantic.  Nothing earth-shattering, but still at least it’s something for you to check out.

January 2011 Recap

Holy crap does time fly when you’re doing nothing but shoveling snow.  Yep, we’ve been inundated with snow the past month or so here in the Northeast, and I have next to no photos to show for it!  But I did manage to get out a few times to shoot.  So instead of doing each one individually, [...]

Trackside with TRAINS.com #153

The next edition of Trackside with TRAINS.com is up on the magazine’s website.  This time around the theme was “Industrial Scene” – something I don’t have much material on at this point.  So I dug through the archives and grabbed a shot of a loaded Johnson City bound coal train on the New England Central [...]

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 [...]

Trackside with TRAINS.com #151

OK folks, the latest edition of Trackside with TRAINS.com is up on their site, and the subject this time around is something near and dear to my heart – NIGHT!  I submitted a shot from the CT Eastern RR Museum I took 4 years ago, and is probably my favorite night shot overall – this [...]
