_MG_6844.jpg"Missed History"595 viewsAn empty bench watches Providence & Worcester train NR-2 glide south past Mill Cove in Gales Ferry, CT.

You can read a more in-depth essay about the rail photography situation in the September 2005 issue of CTC Board Railroads Illustrated

I was inspired to take this photo by the bullshit going around that photography of trains is somehow illegal. If we are to stop watching and taking pictures of railroad operations - our grandchildren's history - what will happen? If we are to stop watching & photographing trains, aren't we just bowing to the terrorsts? Have they really won? To me the empty bench overlooking the passing train is what the future may look like. I'll do what I can to prevent that.

"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." - Benjamin Franklin, 1760
