Based on WCAX's photos, local news sources and aerial photo identification (Google Maps) the location is around mile 17 on the Roxbury Sub, just west of the VA Cutoff Road in Hartford Village. The bank above the NECR leads up to US route 4, the former Woodstock Railroad's grade. The "Upper Valley" got hit with a chain of heavy rainstorms Saturday 7/2, with lots of area towns taking heavy road damage. The NECR main south of White River Jct is also subject to flooding, though it hasn't washed out along the Connecticut in a long time.

Lots of track floating in the air where it was washed out, based on pictures taken since the storm, gonna be a minute to get that track open again.
