Bradford Depot late night espionage

Saturday, December 18th, 2010 by

Last night, passing through downtown on our way to check out Busy Arms at Kelley’s Pub, we noticed a freight train rolling over Washington hauling some unusual cargo. We were pretty excited to see such a shipment pass through town, so after watching it lope across the Merrimack from the Comeau Bridge, we caught up with it at the Bradford Depot where I managed to snap a few photos.

Hmmm...what could it be?

As it quietly chugged along in the dark a handful of staff emerged from Bradford Skateland, not only curious as to what all this stuff was, but why there was  some strange chick running up and down the platform trying to document it.

Figured it out yet?

In fact, one of the staffers flagged us down and with a stern face straight up asked if it was some sort of crazy top-secret rocketry and if I was engaged in espionage. (Geez- first UFOs and now secret agents?) Highly flattered, I confessed that I was actually not a spy, but a lover of alternative energy and we had spent the last fifteen minutes ogling a wind turbine.

Why don't we slap a couple of these up by the solar farm?

Meanwhile off it went creaking and clanking into the night, ready to bring clean energy to some lucky town down the line…

    I think there is nothing cooler than wind turbines. Their size alone is awesome. I’m from Northern NY and when we visit back home it amazes me every time to see them dotting the tree lined roads up there. I love it.

  2. Me too! I really wish there had been more light or I’d had a better camera on hand. It sounds dorky, but it looked really beautiful going across the river at night.

  4. Sorry ’bout that! Your dad can rest assured that the folks at Bradford Skateland have his back after hours. They kept an eye on me the whole time.
