"Passing By Wallingford Station" Last night when I came back into town and parked the Jeep in the driveway,....I opened the door to get out, and there it was, the way off distant sound of the train whistle! Many of you may know that I love anything to do with trains. The nostalgia, the power, the sad sound of a train whistle in the distance, and the beauty of them. Something about them just gets to me. Always have. I ran in the house, grabbed my tripod, (already had my camera in the vehicle) and started the the Jeep back up. I had to hurry, didn't want to miss it as I have many times before. There are 5 road crossings that are fairly close in town, so I chose the closest one to the house and set my camera up on the tripod to wait. It was drizzling out and pretty foggy. I waited, and waited, and waited! Where was it? Maybe my ears were playing tricks on me and there wasn't really a train. I waited there for about 15 minutes, and still no train. I decided to move to the crossing one closer to where the train would be coming from. Again, I heard it! It was coming. I set up again. The drizzle had turned into light rain, and I started to worry a bit about my camera. I stood there for another 10 minutes. I started thinking that maybe I was going a bit crazy! Did I really hear a train? Or was it wishful thinking? And, there it was again. The sweet sound of that whistle. I jumped back into the Jeep with my gear, and moved to the next crossing, by the old Wallingford Station, Vermont, which now houses our volunteer fire dept. I'm just getting out of the vehicle, and there it is! Too close to get set up for a good shot! Darn!! I should have stayed at the last crossing! It wasn't moving that fast, but with slushy snow on the ground, and being as close as it was, I just blew it for a good shot. Oh well, maybe next time I will be more patient. Not a virtue of mine! I guess this photo could also be titled, "Out With The Old And In With The New" Happy New Year All! Feel free to share this post if you would like to. Thank you so much for looking at my work, sharing, liking and commenting this past year. I appreciate it all. Donna `
