Amtrak’s Vermonter passes West Northfield.


In late April, Mike Gardner and I made visit to the old graveyard at West Northfield, Massachusetts (south of the junction at East Northfield on the old Boston & Maine), to photograph Amtrak 56 (the Vermonter) on its way to St Albans, Vermont.

Light cloud softened the afternoon sun, which was slightly back-lit at this location for a northward train. To make the most of the old stones and put the entire train in the picture, I opted for my 12mm Zeiss Touit lens.

I made minor adjustments to the RAW file in Lightroom to present better contrast in the JPG image presented here.

  1. Sorry Brian, but the picture is still not showing for me.

    Thanks for trying, but don’t spend more time on it.

    1. This problem continues to be intermittent and only affecting some readers. Complicating matters for me is that I don’t see the problem when I check my own site. I suspect it is related to the size and parameters of the photo file insert. Although never used to be a problem, since the Word Press update of a couple a months ago several readers have noticed that the pictures won’t appear. I’ve re-scaled and re-inserted the photo, this time at the BOTTOM of the post text. Hopefully you will see it there. Brian

  2. Now, THAT’s a nicely composed picture, with a graveyard as the setting! Unique, and interesting.
    Thank you.
