Connecticut Southern Reflections—four photos.

Traditional ‘wedge’ photo of Connecticut Southern 2011 at Palmer.

Bright orange locomotive against heavy green trees.

83.20 infers the relative distance from milepost zero in Boston.

Simple image to show the relative orientation of the locomotive to the signal box.

Last week CSX’s B740 brought CSOR 2011 to Palmer, Massachusetts for interchange with CSOR’s Genesee & Wyoming sister railroad, New England Central.

I made these views of the locomotive in the yard near the site of the former Boston & Albany freight house.

CSX’s had recently installed a new signal box/cabinet, and I made photos of the bright orange locomotive reflecting in the shiny metal.

Connecticut Southern freight at Warehouse Point, Connecticut.


It was nearly two weeks ago that Paul Goewey and I intercepted Connecticut Southern’s northward road freight at Warehouse Point, Connecticut.

I made these tight views near the east-end of the big bridge over the river using my FujiFilm XT1 with 90mm telephoto.

Classic EMD diesels are among the attractions of Connecticut Southern’s freight.

Connecticut Southern Crosses the Farmington River at Windsor.


Here’s a follow up from Saturday’s post about traveling on CT Rail.

My CT Rail train had overtaken the southward CSOR freight south of Springfield. So when I got off at Windsor Locks, I drove to this location and waited for the freight to follow.

High water in the Farmington River made for a mirror-like reflection.
