TRACKING THE LIGHT Special Post: On the Way to Spencer—Part 1

Tuesday May 27 at 5:10pm: I’m on board Amtrak 475. I boarded at Windsor Locks, Connecticut, I’ll change trains at New Haven. I’ve got an overnight stay planned for near Trenton, New Jersey.

Tomorrow, I’ll continue with fellow photographer Pat Yough to Charlotte, North Carolina. On Thursday we’ll be attending the Streamliners gathering at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer.  (see: http://www.nctrans.org/Events/Streamliners-at-Spencer-(1).aspx).

This promises to be an excellent opportunity to photograph a great variety of restored classic diesels. I’m looking forward to seeing the Alco PA. I’ve written a great deal about this model, yet I’ve never seen one! It will be great to see 611 again.

And, I’ll finally get to see one of the Pan Am executive F-units! (Seems like when ever these run in New England, I’m either in Ireland, Chicago, or someplace over the hills and far away.)

I’ll be posting updates! Stay tuned to Tracking the Light for more photos!
