Hi, all.

Due to the truck crash in New Haven yesterday, southbound Amtrak trains from Boston were turning at Old Saybrook to head back north.

A SLE rescue shuttle arrived to take passengers to Branford, where they would be bused to NHV Union Station. At a little after 8 I left to get dinner.

 

According to the news Amtrak service has been restored, with delays.
