The Mists of TIme

Here’s another one from the ‘3rds’ file.

I’d been chasing the Mass-Central freight and caught it here winding along the Ware River at Thorndike, Massachusetts. Condensation from the factory added atmosphere, and partially obscured former Conrail GP9 7015 that was leading the train that day.

Until a few days ago this image was lost to the mists of time, languishing among ‘BAD’ slides.

It was a Kodachrome 25 exposed using my father’s Leica M3 with f2 Summicron, probably in January 1987.

Although a color slide, there’s very little color in this scene.

I scanned it last night using a Nikon Super Coolscan5000.
