FL9AC wrote:CT-2 is doing it differently lately with basically a two day round trip up the branch and back down. After northbound train does necessary switching at either Tilcon or Rings End in Bethel locos and usually an empty centerbeam or two tie down in Danbury on the Housy main until the next night when they head down the branch after 1876 (last train up before bustitution) get in to Danbury. This afternoon four locos sitting without cars...a B40-8 on each end bracketing two B30-7 b-units.


CT-2s power was laid up today on the Weedsatonic right next to the Danbury Railway Museum today about 8:50 am (0850), 2 4000 - series B40-8s, 2 B30-7 cabless B units sandwiched in between. And of course, stupid me didn't have my point and shoot right on my person, and my Galaxy S5 cell was powered off, both left on my equipment at Danbury Station (had to stroll to the Danbury register room to pick up today's new blanket M Forms for the Danbury/Bethel stop and warns).

Next time.......next time.......I shall be prepared!!

same night. CT-2 headed up the branch last night "Southern style" with a LHF B-Boat and B-unit on the north end and single B-Boat on the south end. They had one centerbeam for Ring's End along with the usual stone cars for Tilcon and afterwards requested use of link track to turn entire consist.

With the last trains being buses after rush hour would ct2 come up during 1888's time slot or still come up after 1899 heads down and before 1894 heads up branch
