I made this a few weeks ago while photographing a covered bridge in another part of Ashland, NH. The town has preserved its historic train station and the historical society operates it as a museum. Below is a BW image of a train snowplow that is also at the train station.
Something a bit darker for today. Situated in the town of Bethlehem, NH is the former Maplewood Village railroad station, which opened in 1881. According to one website, the trains stopped running in the 1920s. Today, it is pretty much in ruins and seriously leaning to one side.
In 1930, H.P. Sears opened this gas station in Rome, NY. It provided gas and other services to the local citizens until the 1970s. Rather than sell the property, the family kept it boarded up until 2006 when they restored it and opened it as a museum to show the way service stations once looked. It is a fun stop to make as you travel through upstate New York.
A friend and I had made some night photos all evening long in Krakow. We were finished and having a beer when she commented that the train station was another great place to make photos at night. With that, we finished our beers and headed back across town. The clock shows that these were taken a little after 1:00 AM.
This photo was taken at the train station in Krakow very late in the evening, or more like very early in the morning. A friend and I had spent the evening making some nighttime photographs all over Krakow and were having a last beer before calling it a night. We both felt exhausted. Then, she mentioned that she’d always found the train station to be beautiful at night. Off we went to get more photos.
