I'm sure not crying for Big Blue. Under them half of the railroads in CT
were abandoned. PC started it by providing terrible service so noone
would use em, Conrail continued it
Simsbury, CT, a great old railroading town, has no track left now, its
roadbed is a popular walking spot for yuppies. The P&W is taking over,
and under them some lines are actually being reopened!
