Other CDOT Rail lines?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone knows if CDOT runs any other railroad service then just the SLE and the CDOT/MNR New Haven Line/Branches?

 

Or are these the only two of CDOT?

As of right now that's it.

CDOT owns equipment operated by Amtrak and Metro-North. Metro-North Operates The New Haven Lines and its branches while Amtrak operates Shoreline East.

New Haven–Springfield Line or Hartford Line is owned by Amtrak but CDOT purposes operating a commuter line via this route adding stations, double tracks and frequent service.

The CDOT also owns the tracks ran by MN and used by both MN and Amtrak between the NY stateline and New Haven. Amtrak owns the tracks that they operate SLE trains on for CDOT. CDOT owns the SLE cars operated by Amtrak but not the Amtrak cars used in Amtrak trains. I believe that they did own the SPV2000 rail diesel cars that Amtrak used to run on the New Haven - Springfield shuttle trains.
