More New Haven Pacific photos
Author: choochoocharlie

More 4X5 negative photos from Harry R. Lange

1 - New Haven Pacific #1331 arriving in Waterbury from the south with a short passenger train. The various automobiles in the parking lot below the track level are interesting too.
2 - Pacific #1331 leaving the Waterbury station headed North with another short passenger train. That's the clock tower of the station in the background. Photo taken on August 20th, 1948.
3 - Pacific #1331 seen going under a road bridge with a short passenger train probably North and East of Waterbury Connecticut. Photo taken on August 28th, 1948.

Always welcome location comments if known, as sometimes the negative sleeves don't have much info on them. I can remember some of the locations when looking at the photos, but for anything else, I am lost. Photogs, now, please remember that. Years later when you look at your photos you will wish you had taken note of at least the date and location of your photos. I hear that all the time when I get together with other rail photographers and we all show some of our photos. Especially if something happens to you and someone else has to try and figure it out. After a couple of years I realized I needed to make notes. From then on I not only noted the date and location, but also the time, train direction, lens used, camera settings (shutter speed and F/stop) film type, and even any pertinant info on what was happening at the time the photo was taken.

Your dad was not only a good photographer, he taught you well. That is a fascinating collection of cars in the first photo. The "fastback" must be one of GM's first, maybe a 1941? It's fun to try to pick out the various manufacturers products, for those of us old enough to remember these machines.
