Saw a Marc cab car leading an Amtrak engine, amfleet and another Marc or MNRR coach(?) northbound maybe on to the Hudson line as we were approaching the bridge to cross the Harlem River into Manhattan. This was around 10:20 on Tuesday morning (8th)

A while back now (few months? a year?) Pan Am came down the Waterbury Branch to Derby/Shelton to interchange a car to (or was it from?) the Housatonic RR. Does anyone know what this car was, why it happened, and if there's been any similar move since? Sorry to be vague, but I have no idea what the move was all about, hoping someone can shed some light. Perhaps a test run?

most likely it was just a car meant for a MofW project, HRRC has no interchange rights at Derby and neither has PanAm.
The old Maybrook is still out of service between Derby and Botsford.

Museum move of a car from DRM to Pittsfield. Not sure why the flat couldn't have come that way? I don't have full details on the move, but apparently, another car was interchanged as well.
