Nice shots!!!

 

When the new Madison, opened, CDOT said that a new Westbrook is under design. That immediately implied to me that the new Westbrook would be a high-level station, as the new Branford, Clinton, and Madison stations all replaced an old LL platform.

 

Why would they revamp a station that would be demolished anyway? Maybe because CDOT's long term plans involve double-siding all stations?

Very nice!

 

How fast was 2006 going anyways (estimate)?

 

- A

 

Thanks, (A). I think track speed is about 90 through there but not sure and I don't think 2006 was doing that, maybe 75.

 

Nice shots!!!

I think "revamp" might be overstating a simple paint job done to highlight the yellow safety line. I bet that cost the state about 50 bucks to do that maybe 100 :)

Thanks Paul!

 

Nice shots as always! What day / time did you take the shots of the Acela with 2003 on the head end?

 

It was on the 15th and around 3, although my EXIF says 21: :)
