I stayed overnight in Utica, NY after a busy day of photographing further west in the Syracuse area. My plan was to head home along the western edge of the Adirondacks stopping to photograph the many falls along the Moose and Black Rivers.
Before leaving Utica, I took a quick ride over to the area of the train station and photographed a few buildings in the area, a few trains sitting on the tracks and on display by the train station, and a few trains beside the Children’s Museum.

A couple of shots of random warehouses that happened to catch my attention:
Train cars sitting on the tracks near the train station:
Historic steam engine on display by the train station entrance:
Other historic trains on display by the Children’s Museum. I didn’t attempt to go into the Children’s Museum because I knew that I would probably spend a lot of time in there and I would have a tough time getting out to photograph the falls that I had planned to photograph.
