When it comes to photographing trains in Windsor Locks, Route 159 along the canal is a popular area, especially next to the Ahlstrom-Munksjo Nonwovens plant. A spot that's usually overlooked is the former New Haven Railroad station, which is owned by the town of Windsor Locks and on the National Register of Historic Places. The fate of this 1875 brick structure is unknown, but eventually a new Windsor Locks station for Amtrak and CTrail will be constructed in this area, so get your photos before it changes. I have photographed the freights rolling past the depot numerous times, with all different power consists, but I’ve always hoped to get Providence & Worcester’s Super 7 2215. On a sunny afternoon in January, Connecticut Southern CSO-4 with 27 cars in tow, makes its way towards Hartford, passing the depot.
