It's an extended thing - not going to be done in a week. The temporary platforms were there last summer though not in use.

Understand there was some kind of a wire problem on Fri. the 12th near CP 241. Delays were very slight considering there was single TK CP 241-248 and the single tracking lasted only about 1.5 hrs. Was there a wire train right there that had been working on TK 1 to go over and fix the problem on tracks 2 and 4?

Work to start next year on replacing the South Norwalk-Greens Farms and East Bridgeport-Stratford wires. Only one track will be out at a time for this phase of the project.

Perhaps we should start separate threads for each sections when the time comes?
