Stamford an Greewich (MNRR)


Recommended Posts

Thursday (4/1/10), I took a quick trip to Stamford to see what I would catch, since alot of work was being done, due to flooding. Then my mom picked me up and I went to Greenwich for the first time. They had the Bridgeplates up there because of the new track that was laid down. Well Enjoy! Also look out for the Amtrak part of my railfanning.

The (MTA) was trying to bring this crane to life so they could use it again. They had like 5 guys wielding and hammering it.

I actually caught a desiel but it was just turning around to go back towards New Haven. Then another one came to turn around but before I could get to the other platform it left.

Do I see the MNRR version of money train? They loaded some boxes and 2 big padlocked bags onto the back of the local train to GCT. Whats also weird is that they locked the two back cars.

Could be, although they use (or at least used to use) an armored car service for revenue collections. Another possibility is it's the daily mail train and they use a dead head.

gotta love bridge plates on the NH line...especially when you hear the conductor over the PA spotting the engineer "more more more more STOP!"

That's just company mail, timetables and such, not money. Mail trains are just regular local trains where they close a car or two to deliver the mail to stations.
