Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Lowell, Massachusetts
March 02, 2016 Travelling from Andover, where we slept, into Boston, we stopped at Lowell Junction for a few minutes to see what we could find. In the afternoon, travelling from Boston to the area of Milford, New Hampshire, we took the scenic route via Worcester station and found it very hospitable and welcoming to railfans.
