The last move of the Blue unit thru NY Penn to Harold should be during the overnight hours of 5/10-11/17
LIRR takes over at Harold,runs on the Mainline to Queens tower,then on the Hempstead Branch to Garden,the the Circus
camps on the Garden-Mitchell Secondary till 05/21.
During the overnight hours of 5/22-23/17 the Blue unit heads home,returning the same way to Harold,then turned over to
Amtrak,and becomes the last circus train thru NY Penn. :(

Anyone know where the circus train will be parked in Manchester, NH? It looks like there's a few sidings next to the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, but for all I know they park the train well outside the city.
