Photos: Stamford and New Canaan

Taken last sunday on a trip to New Canaan.

Not sure why there's a diesel train there, supposedly it was a Danbury train but I thought they end and begin at South Norwalk...

The New Canaan train this time was 3 pairs of M2s, no triplets this time, which meant this was the best I could get photo-wise up there.

The BL20 #127 on Danbury-Mini Bomb shuttle trainset was in Stamford because the Loco had to be refueled at the yard.

is it normal to board Sunday Danbury branch trains at Stamford? or was that like a rare occasion I just happen to see there?

you can't board the danbury train in Stamford on weekends it only goes there as Deadhead move.
on Weekdays check schedule, as several shuttles start or finish in Stamford.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

I know from the schedule it starts at South Norwalk or something, but seeing that train parked there in Stamford confused me.
