Gotta love it! Amtrak finally posted an announcement about the bus-stitution from the weekend after the fact.

What's the point of posting all that after the fact?

Unsure of whether you are criticizing Amtrak posting it late or me posting that here after the fact. In case you are referring to me, I removed the information from my previous post since at this point it is useless info -was more just making fun of them posting it late.

I rode trains 417 and 412 yesterday for a pizza dinner in New Haven and made a few observations:

-Shuttle cars are now equipped with the new interiors - carpeting and cushions with the seats still facing both directions due to the push-pull operations.

-Windsor Central Street crossing restoration work proceeding - new platform on track 2 is also coming along nicely, although disagree with them building this temporary low level platform - will post photos from passing by tomorrow.

- Seems to be work going on in the vicinity of the Warehouse Point CT River bridge. Probably just routine repairs in the area.

- The "new" side of New Haven - State Street Station is now open. That was my first time seeing the new "southbound side" of the station.

- At Springfield Union high level platform work progressing - the old platform canopy is fully removed and they are now digging up and removing the former asphalt platform. Springfield line trains are using tracks 8 and 2a during the work - this was the first time I ever was on a train using track 2a at Springfield and the connecting track from the Springfield Line to the B&A tracks in order to access it.
