Service is also partially throttled by mainline slots or lack thereof. If anything is built to modify Waterbury branch capacity and free up mainline space, it should be a permanent Devon transfer station.

It has been too long since on the MNRR east line. How constrained is main line capacity on the New Haven line due to the reconstruction of the various draw bridges? schedule planning probably has to do with the periods that only 2 tracks will be i use at the various draws?

What are the various constraints of MNRR running longer trains especially those that are going to be connecting trains off the branches? I suspect that we might see a contraction of thru trains off the branches.
