Remarks & Notes 
Grandma Moses Was Here. Famous folk artist Grandma Moses lived a stone's throw away from the station at Eagle Bridge. Let your mind reach back through the veil of time; let it conjure up the warmth of a coal stove on a similar snowy day, the sound of the telegrapher's key, sleigh bells echoing from the farm across the tracks, the laughter of children outside nearby homes, and the heels of impatient passengers pacing across the depot's hardwood floor as they await their connection between the D&H Washington Branch and the B&M mainline. Such images pranced through the mind of Grandma Moses. Her paintings reflected as her tombstone now reads "the spirit . . . of a vanishing countryside." The mournful horn of MEC 608 brings us back to reality on this lonely winter day, as this photographer wonders when like the images of Grandma Moses this scene too will pass into history. Scanned from Fujichrome Provia 100F. Shot with Canon L-series 24-70mm f2.8 lens.
