On the Armory branch work scheduled to resume on the rebuilding - there are two existing customers are at the South WIndsor end of the line but supposedly there is at least one "definite" customer up in the Hazardville (Enfield) area.
I wonder if the truck driver shortage will help generate rail carload business? Let's hope the big railroads don't drop the ball if there is opportunity - I know the shortlines would be very happy.
Good news on Griffins. Thanks for sharing. South Windsor customers are the fertilizer dealer and a brick company correct?

Unless you reconnect the armory branch to the CSX Boston line This is nothing more than a waste of rail and ties Is on a dead end branch with little or no customers.

Not a lot of freight movement right now but between Bloomfield @ Cottage Grove Rd and Hartford there's a lot of activity by the power company replacing the old wood poles with taller, metal ones. They're working pretty much daily, lot of different heavy equipment from Michels being used on the tracks if you're into that sort of thing.
