EMD Diesels Roll at Newbury, Vermont

Red diesels in the snow can make for classic photographs. This combination is much nicer than black diesels in the mud,

Kris Sabbatino and I were on our way north when we paused for a sandwich at Newbury, Vermont.

After a while, we could hear the whistle of the northward Vermont Rail System freight on its way from White River Junction to Newport.

I made these photos using my Nikon Z6 with 24-70mm lens.

Farleys Revisited.

As we raced east on Rt2 in pursuit of Pan Am Southern’s ED-8, I kept my eye open for the turn that lead down to the railroad location on the old Boston & Maine known as ‘Farleys’.

I thought back to that February morning, 35 years ago, when working with my father’s Leica, I exposed the final frame on a roll of Kodachrome 64 of an eastward Boston & Maine loaded Bow coal train meeting the westward POPY (Portland to Potomac Yard) at Farleys.

While ED8 wasn’t quite as thrilling as that rolling meet, it was pretty neat to soak in the sight and sounds of this 106-car freight grinding up the grade toward Erving.

I exposed this photo using my Nikon Z6 with an aim to adjust the RAW (NEF) file to maximize the data presented so as to compensate for the excessively contrasty scene.
