Attention Big Blue Fans

Here's a youTube video I came across when doing some research on the Housatonic RR.  The Housatonic  owns part of the old Maybrook line.    This video has some great Conrail footage from 1990, hauling a heavy stone train across the Maybrook Line onto the Berkshire Division, all of which is now HRRC trackage.  Keep your volume up for the beginning, as you hear the train long before you see it.

I thought you might like that.  Unfortunately, that was a sight that will never be seen again...  :|

Makes me think you definitely need a CR throwback night on the Housatonic some time though.

I've already got that covered!   8)  I have at least 10 Conrail Diesels to represent the 80's and some Guilford to work the north end of the line in Canaan and Pittsfield, MA.  (I have signs to backdate some of the industries that have changed names since then too.)
