Blue Sky and Blue Diesels at North Adams Six Years Ago

On this day six years ago—February 18, 2016— Mike Gardner and I photographed a westward Pan Am Railways freight that was tied down at North Adams, Massachusetts awaiting a re-crew.

I made these photos using my Lumix LX7.

The Pan Am blue SD40-2s made for interesting subjects. I felt that this shade of blue looked good in the winter sunlight.

Over and Under Five Years Ago!

Five years ago on this day, May 28, 2016, I paid a visit to the Berkshire Scenic at North Adams, Massachusetts to photograph their historic Budd RDC at work on the old Boston & Albany branch.

In this trailing view, I caught the class self-propelled diesel car passing below the Pan Am’s Boston & Maine Fitchburg mainline. Consider the irony of the CSX auto rack!

Oddly, these days I find myself having to answer the question, ‘What does self-propelled mean?’
