Wait, the Hartford Line has BETTER equipment?

I guess you really can put some Coke Zero lipstick on a pig and people will buy it :P

Get the M-8's on SLE service and settle that ACSES argument between Amtrak and ConnDOT,that's the quickest fix!

Recycled & Leased MBTA MBB's that ConnDOT rebuilt,will not last long....... :wink:

Well the Hartford Line equipment is half better.....the half operated with Amfleet coaches is better than the SLE equipment (more than half of the service north of Hartford.) :-)
