Berlin, Connecticut Revisited.

This is a follow up to my Tracking the Light post of December 23, 2016, where I explained that on Wednesday December 21, 2016, Otto Vondrak sent me the sad news that the old station at Berlin, Connecticut had been gutted by fire.

This was reported as a ‘total loss.’

I generally avoid accidents, derailment sites, and fires. However, a few weeks ago, I decided I should take a look at the remains of the Berlin station before the scene was made unrecognizable.

This was not an easy photo to make. I have a lot of happy memories of this place. Exposed in January 2017 on film using my Nikon F3.
Here’s the Berlin Station’s arched window as it appeared in September 2004.

One thought on “Berlin, Connecticut Revisited.”

  1. I savor the memories of my 21 years at the Berlin station. Although the fire and its results were like loosing a close friend, I feel for the people of the town of Berlin who had supported having the building renovated and now have only memories.
    I certainly hope the cause of the fire will be determined and publicized. Those renovating the Windsor Locks station should pay particular attention to this case.
