As someone who grew up in Canaan during the 30's, 40's and 50's, I will try to give you some details as to how to find the old CNE r-o-w east of there. At the current "end of track" of the present day branch approximately one mile east of downtown, the CNE once crossed US44 via a bridge. The line between East Canaan and Canaan remained in service until 1940 whereas the line from East Canaan to Norfolk Summit was abandoned in 1938. The New Haven only had one customer on the line in to East Canaan and that was a storage facility for Gulf Oil. The State of Connecticut wanted to force the New Haven to install a new bridge over Route 44 so that the highway could be widened; however, the railroad refused and even contacted Gulf Oil stating that they (NH RR) would help build a new facility for them in Canaan so that the line to East Canaan could be abandoned. This was done and with no longer a customer on the branch, the line was abandoned. - - As you head East on US44, the r-o-w can be seen on the right hand side of the road in many places. Best seen, of course, would be when there is no foliage. The former East Canaan station which is now a residence (was moved about a quarter mile west of it's original location) can be seen on the right side of the highway next to a liquor store. There is absoloutely no evidence of the r-o-w traveling through East Canaan as the fill that was once there was used in the rebuilding of US44 in the area. There is a very slight rise in the road where the railroad crossed US44 in the center of East Canaan and there is now a house built directly on the r-o-w on the left side of the road. You can, however, see the r-o-w directly beyond this house until it disappears behind a cemetery. It is just beyond this cemetery where the Gulf Oil facility was located. If you make a left hand turn on Canaan Valley Road and go about 3/4ths of a mile, you should be able to make out where the r-o-w crossed this road and on to a very high fill which was built over the Whiting River. There are twin stone arches below this fill where the river flows through one of them and the other was once for a road (Old Turnpike Road) which is now abandoned. Beyond the fill when leaves are gone, you can see the r-o-w in many places climbing the hill on the left side of US44. About a mile west of Norfolk Village, there is a road off to the left of US44 called Ashpohtag Road. Going up this road for about 1/4 mile you will come upon the area where the CNE crossed the road on a very narrow bridge. A pleasant walk along the r-o-w back towards East Canaan will bring you to a very steep rock cut that was called Stoney Lonesome. It was here that a steam locomotive of the Hartford & Connecticut Western (a CNE predecessor) jumped the track and went down the embankment back in 1888. The r-o-w here winds around the north side of Haystack Mountain and comes in to Norfolk along the east side of Rte272 (North St.) It looks like I am running out of space here and if you need any further information, I will continue on later as to how to find the line east of Norfolk up to Norfolk Summit.
