Excellent photos Fred. They all look great. I really like the photo with the two Acela's on them. What speed do the Acela's pass through Guilford?

Harry, IINM track speed there is about 100 or so. As you know CT is really curvy so we don't get the big time 150 like up in Kingston RI (if they're even going that fast anymore).

Thanks for sharing the pictures Fred, they are all excellent!

My favourite is the two Acelas at New London; bridge, water and the buildings in the background make for a perfect setting!
