Conway Scenic 7470 Gone Retro—August 2019.

Last night, I was inspecting scans of some black & white negatives from last summer that are stored on my hard drive.

These are some photos from a Sunday morning in early August at North Conway, New Hampshire of locomotive 7470.

All of these are from a roll of Fuji Acros 100, exposed with a Nikon F3 with 50mm lens and processed with split-bath/multi-stage development using a weak bath of HC110 followed by Rodinal for primary development.

Steam in the Snow!

Yesterday, January 4, 2020, Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts Inc., operated its famous Steam in the Snow event at the Conway Scenic Railroad from North Conway to Notchland, New Hampshire.

Locomotive 7470 was the star of the show.

Several photo run bys were organized to allow travelers on the train to make photos and enjoy watching the locomotive in action.

Conway Scenic’s President and General Manager Dave Swirk was at the throttle of the steam locomotive.

As a representative of Conway Scenic, I traveled on the train for part of its journey and documented people enjoying the event.

This view at Notchland, shows Mass Bay RRE’s photo line up during the first of three staged runbys at this location.

Exposed using a FujiFilm XT1 with 18-135mm lens mounted on a Bogen tripod.

More to come!

Conway Scenic 7470 Switching in the North Yard—four photos.

At the end of June 2019, I exposed a few frames of Ilford HP5 using an old Nikkormat FTN with 105mm Nikkor Lens of Conway Scenic’s 0-6-0 7470 working the North Yard at North Conway, New Hampshire.

Following my normal presoak procedure; I processed the film using Ilford ID-11 mixed 1-1 with water for 6 minutes 15 secs at 70F.
