This was an example of the quintessential New Haven Railroad Yard of the early 60s. It featured long freight houses, many old cabooses, tons of scrap metal, early generation ALCO’s and an outdoor interlocking plant. Wicked place to be in the winter of 1961 I say. It stands as one of my prize captures. I was 15 years old at the time and took this shot with a Brownie fixed lens fixed focus, fixed shutter camera. All conditions: light, atmosphere, camera shake and angle had to be just right to get this outcome.
