New England Central and the Coast Guard Eagle—New London, Connecticut.


Mike Gardner and I made an epic chase of New England Central freight 608 on Halloween Day 1997.

Among my favorite views from that day is this color slide exposed from a footbridge along the Thames River at New London, Connecticut.

In the distance is US Coast Guard training ship Eagle.

Two years later I stood on the deck of the Eagleat the Irish port of Cobh in County Cork, having arrived by train from Cork city.

Tonight, February 28, 2019 at 730pm, I’ll be giving an old school slide show to the Irish Railway Record Society, located opposite the Heuston Station car park in Dublin. Among my featured railroads will be New England Central.
