I was told by senior co-workers that MN preserving the reminants of the Maybrook was by Don Nelson. With his logic back then to preserve it in case of equipment moves.

Noel, another one of the senior guys told me many moons ago perhaps early 90's or late 80's there was a job or 2 out of Put Juct that used to take equipment from Brewster to Danbury and taxi back. Were you around for that and if so when did the regular moves like that recind?

I left Metro-North in the fall of 1987 and at that time I moved to the Albany area and exercised my seniority with Conrail. At that time Conrail still owned and operated the Maybrook Line and the Beacon Line between Beacon and Derby Junction as well as Danbury - New Milford.
