Larry, so true... I don't think that G&W cares about the East hartford cluster. I would bet AJ - get busnesses to be served by rail. I'd love to see the state buy East Hartford to Vernon and the Armory branch, and I bet AJ would have businesses using rail on the line...I know it's a dream, but on my model, the Rockville Railroad goes to Ellington and it serves the juice company up there (tank cars and reefers), Ellington airport (av fuel (tank cars) and airplane parts (boxcars and Flat cars), Agway (tractors on flat cars, hopper cars of feed) and in Rockville a few industries (including tank cars of fibreglass resins). Of course, a model railroad don't make a profit or lose money - it is fun...

Saw signals at Wintonbury ave crossing being worked on, gates also finally added to crossbucks. Great news for this stretch of track in Bloomfield CT.
