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 [...]
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. [...]
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, [...]
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…
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.
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, [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
On Sunday the 17th I had to run down to Stop-N-Shop for some last minute supplies for dinner. Heading out there things were quiet in Willimantic – traffic waiting for the PW to pick up, and no activity in the NECR yard. The trip back home, however, things were a bit different.
