I've had it happen many times coming into/out of Stamford, although I'm usually on the commuter train. I remember being on a Danbury through train in the late '90s and runnning neck and neck with a then-brand-new Acela from around Rye to somewhere past Greenwich, where our two 40+ year old FL9's-- New Haven paint and all-- pulled far into the lead.

O/T but there's an Agatha Christie mystery novel based on this-- someone witnesses a murder in a compartment on another train running on a paralell track. Can't remember the title though.

AA little late, but I just got around to this thread. It was published in Britain as "4:50 From Paddington" and in the U. S. as "What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw." It was also made into a movie (b/w) with Margaret Rutherford -- not very faithful to the original, but I think I remember some fairly authentic train shots at the beginning.
