After Dark - nanosphoto
Sleeping Giant<br />
A former New Haven EMD FL-9 sits quietly on the grounds of the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT as the crescent moon sets in the background.  This was taken during a test night shoot.  It was the first time I had used studio monolights to light a night scene - this was using two lights - one nearly face on, and the other broadside.  Traditionally we had used a portable Lumedyne flash, which was used to evenly light the scene.  This method enabled the use of shadows to add some depth, and preserve the night "feel"

NR-4 pausing in Willimantic, Conn.

On January 6, 2008 the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran the newest job - symbol NR-4 - between Plainfield and Willimantic, CT. The train would handle customers on the Willimantic Branch, along with the interchagne traffic with the New England Central Railroad. Here NR-4 pauses in Willimantic yard so the crew can swap ends for the return trip back to Plainfield.
