I don't think there is any need to reelectrify the Danbury Branch. There will be little time savings of an electric train accelerating as they depart and decelerate when arriving at stations on the branch. The speed limit is only 50 with many curves. I could certainly see a siding or two added. It might even be nice to extend the branch to Danbury North. This would be great for those people who live along 84 east of Danbury who might work in The Norwalks and Stamford. It's not cost effective to reopen the line between Danbury and Brewster just to have revenue trains running from Danbury to Grand Central by way of the Harlem Line. This won't save people time. Plenty of people who live in Danbury can get to either Southeast or Brewster faster than if a train were to run between Brewster, Southeast, and Danbury. CDOT's main rail priorities is getting the New Haven Line up to a better state of repair, ordering brand new equipment for the Hartford Line and Shore Line East operations, part of Ctrail.
