On the Right Track
Camera: Panasonic LX100 
Posted By: Sailor, 07-04-2017, 07:11 AM

During our trip to Connecticut last week, we visited the town of Essex - the kind of almost painfully charming New England town I would live in if it didn't get so damn cold up there in the winter. While in Essex, we took a short train ride (combined with a river cruise) along the bank of the Connecticut river in a train powered by a genuine, coal-fired steam engine. Here are some shots I grabbed.

The second shot features my daughter (the professor) while the third pic is of my son-in-law (also a professor) pondering the wonders of train travel.

Photobucket seems to want to extort money from you to upgrade. I am seeing placeholders where the photos should be.

Thanks all - and PB has indeed nailed me to the wall. The hell with 'em. What would you guys recommend as an alternative? I don't mind spending a few dollars, but 400 bucks a year??? No way.

Flickr allows (their process even seems to encourage) sharing photos on boards and such, at least for now. Most of those posted here by me are flickr.

I am still with pbase.com It's easy to navigate and upload and linking is no problem. Prices are, IMHO more than reasonable.

Flickr allows you 1 TERABYTE... free. I've been with them for years and have had no problems other than they change the format every now and then. I also use Google + as a back-up and sometimes to share out images.

I just switched to Flickr.... Given the number of Photobucket users, which I believe was around 6 million, my guess, if there are going to be quite a few folks moving their accounts.

Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions. I'm going to try Flicker for a while and see how that words out.

I just joined 500px as it was only 19.99 a year with unlimited uploads. Hopefully a good site.

The first photo provides a glimpse of the "herald" on the tender. It is based on what the "New Haven" railroad used in the day of steam {folk in Connecticut are very proud of their connection to the "New Haven" and do what they can to preserve memories of it}

A great series, Jer. I really like the perspective on #4. I can remember as a young kid, we'd go down to the train tracks and watch the steam engines hauling away car-loads of scrap iron. I can remember the wheels spinning, and then sand would come out of a little pipe onto the tracks to increase traction. Good Lord, that really dates me, doesn't it!
