South of Stafford, Connecticut, the former Central Vermont Railway runs along Plains Road, before crossing it to continue its path along the Willimantic River.
This is a favorite morning location for me, but a week ago Tuesday I opted to catch the southward 608 in the last rays of winter sun.

New England Central began operations on the former Central Vermont Railway in Febraury 1995 using a dozen freshly painted secondhand GP38s.
More than 23 years later, and two changes of ownership, and New England Central still has a handful of these old GP38s working in the same paint scheme.
Last week, a matched pair of these engines was working the Willimantic-Palmer freight, job 608.
I made an effort to catch these venerable diesels on the roll.
