Salem and Hillsborough 1754

Wayback: Overnight in Hillsborough

Set your wayback machine to July 14-15, 2006. My wife and two youngest children were away in Winnipeg visiting her relatives, and my oldest son was with his mother, so I was alone for the weekend. Time to volunteer at the New Brunswick Railway Museum!

I drove to Hillsborough after work on Friday, July 14. I believe that I stayed in Clarence Price’s caboose overnight. Clarence had very generously given me an open invitation to use his caboose when volunteering there, and he had refitted the interior as a comfortable place to stay over.

That evening, it was quite foggy and I took the opportunity to do some night photography. I guess I wasn’t sleepy at 11:30 PM…

The “excursion train” was standing on the main line by the station. By this time, trains were not operating but they were on display for people to look at and walk through.

The fog really added a “mood” to the night. I didn’t have a lot of practice with night photography, so this gave me an opportunity to sharpen my skills a bit.

Just a few photos… to remember.
