Call to Paint -- Tuesday, 25 June 2013 -- 8 AM

Essex Steam Train -- Valley Railroad

Essex, CT

So far, the forecast gives us a GO for Tuesday -- our first visit to paint at this site. If I remember correctly, the man told me there is shade and trains on a side track in a place that will be convenient for painting, as they have painters who visit regularly. Again, we can expect HEAT, so I will plan to start at 8. If you don't like that time, come when you can. It will be fun to do something different from our usual landscapes and seascapes. Bring lunch or plan to get some lunch at their Trackside Cafe. This site also has bathrooms.

Directions below.

I hope to see you there!


ESSEX STEAM TRAIN, 1 Railroad Ave., Essex


From I-95, take Exit 69. Merge onto CT-9N toward Essex/Hartford. After 3.7 miles,
take Exit 3. Turn LEFT (north) onto CT-154. After 0.2 mi., turn LEFT onto Middlesex Turnpike (Saybrook Road. After 0.3 mi., turn LEFT onto Railroad Avenue. The station is directly ahead. If you do not see anyone from our group in this area, look for a CTSA sign on a tripod to direct you.
