This old railroad switcher engine was spotted in the repair facilities at the Essex Connecticut Valley railroad in Connecticut. Amazing detail and dramatic wide-angle with the leading lines of the railroad track bed result in a striking image.
Also at the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat or Valley Railroad, this steam locomotive was enhancesd with billowing steam and smoke.
I waited in a cut through for the scheduled steam train to billow through the forests, belching smoke and steam as the whistle blew for the crossing just a head. Focusing and firing the shutter rapidly to capture just the right composition.
Amtrack still makes daily runs alone the Connecticut River on the Vermont side of the Upper Valley. Passenger trains thunder by these old freight buildings in Norwich, Vermont every day. In between local freight trains move essentials such as propane and a tourist train operates on the tracks between Amtrack runs.
Old abandoned box cars in Central Vermont. The Central Vermont Railway (reporting mark CV) was a railroad that operated in the U.S. states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont, as well as the Canadian province of Quebec.
It connected Montreal, Quebec, with New London, Connecticut, using a route along the shores of Lake Champlain, through the Green Mountains and along the Connecticut River valley, as well as Montreal to Boston, Massachusetts, through a connection with the Boston and Maine Railroad at White River Junction, Vermont.
This unique spot in the Rocky Mountains is a favorite to capture trains, and is now called Morant’s Curve. It’s perfect. You have the majestic slopes of the Rockies in the background, and the track bends beautifully with the Bow River. The valley is a huge carpet of majestic trees and the train just pierces it all, a magnificent contrast of hulking machine and pristine beauty.
Morant’s Curve is just a few minutes outside of Lake Louise and just about an hour from Banff.
