The very nice, printed trip handout done by MBRRE covered the details such as the stub to Albert Bros being the remaining portion of the old Watertown Branch, etc. A few PA system glitches were corrected during the trip, sometimes those things happen. At one point, there was commercial (FM) radio interference over the PA system. The first photo stop was just under a mile from Thomaston station, so communicating that stop was a bit iffy. Once the train stopped at The Patch, everyone figured it out quickly!
As for any regular, scheduled passenger operations to and from Torrington, those will be on a case-by-case basis for now. Watch the RMNE website http://www.rmne.org

This season will see some final bits of trackwork in Torrington, as well as a culvert replacement project just north of Chase Bridge. That project will eliminate a long-standing slow order over that culvert.
