I am curious to know what purpose the Maybrook line served once New Haven
was taken into Penn Central?  The B&A line handled the majority of freight
traffic into and out of New England during PC's tenure and Conrail. With
the P-bridge burnt out in 1970 or '71, nothing went across the Maybrook
line for Conrail.  

Why keep it?
