VRR Charter Half Sold Out

Lerro Productions Presents:
The Valley Railroad Photo Charter with New Haven 3025
May 21-22, 2012
Essex, CT

The Valley Railroad runs along the very scenic Connecticut River and features a number of bridges, rock cuts, open fields as well as several old railroad buildings. The charter will feature recently acquired and restored 2-8-2 #3025. The former Knox and Kane Railroad locomotive #58 has been beautifully restored to look like a New Haven Railroad locomotive.

As many of you know, the locomotives at the VRR face north during their passenger operations. This makes it very difficult for good photography on a sunny day. For this charter, we’ll raise the money to turn locomotive #3025 to face south, making this a very rare chance to photograph this line in optimal lighting conditions. We will also raise money in order to bring some of the railroad’s freight cars into operating order. The charter will feature one day will feature a freight consist with caboose and the 2nd day will feature a Pullman green passenger consist.

  1. Hi Pete,

    I am very much interested in Valley Railroad Photo charter May 21 – 22, 2012. It is a 9 to 10 driving jaunt for me ans, as such, I am wondering if you could advise if someone or other from ON or eastern New York state might be participating that I could motor with? I meant to reply sooner but we are in the midst of moving / downsizing and time has been limited. Hoping to hear from you soon and hoping to participate in both the freight and passenger day sessions.

    Cheers, Glenn

  2. Hi Pete…Florence and I are paid in full for your “New Haven” charter in May. I see that it is not sold out yet. I know it is still only late February, but, do you think you will sell enough tickets to make it a go? I still have to put in for Monday and Tuesday for being off at work. Thanks Pete.
