I don't know about you but I can tell the difference between a genesis and a brookville if I can hear the train - be it engine sound OR horn.
Change at Bridgeport for service to Derby-Shelton, Ansonia, Seymour, Beacon Falls, Naugatuck and Waterbury

It's out and about for the employee Holiday train - I saw the schedule posted someplace the other day, but did I actually save it/screenshot it/remember which group? Of course not :(
