Metro North has a Dumptruck and Other Stories From da Port

Recommended Posts

I was meeting a friend in Bridgeport who was running late, so I had some time to kill, which means go take some pics :D

 

I caught up with some track work on the east side of town, about a mile from the station.

hokay, that's enough MOW stuff for now, eh? Let's move on to some transit pics and no coffee break :D

Waterbury Shuttle train leaves Bridgeport and notice only 1 BL20GH. There are rumors that some basic problems have been resolved but don't quote me.

SLE Train running as a Metro North express, and with a GP40. This train usually has a leased Amtrak P40 pushing it, so it's a treat to see this.

Again, a single locomotive and not 2.

Dammit, everybody's got to get in the act...

So my friend showed up and later as I was headed home I found time for one more catch over at the Bus Station...

It's just north or just east of where the New Canaan branch splits off, in Glenwood. On the map it's where Rt 106 crosses the MN main. They're gonna remove them, I'm told :mad:

 

Thanks for the good words brah :)
