Penn Central had other far better routes in to New England than the Poughkeepsie Bridge to handle the remaining traffic in Connecticut. The freight business in this area was drying up faster than clothes in a gas dryer and it would never return. There would not have been enough for even a small short line to handle today. Little or nothing remains except abandoned ROW's and empty factory buildings and property in ruin, go there and you will understand what I am trying to tell you.
Unfortunately with these forums you are always getting in new people with the same questions and it is easier to ask than to do the research, such as type something in the search box in the upper right hand corner.
But, at least you are willing to rehash the story which is appreciated. Sometimes, through the rehashing, some new bit of information gets revealed which makes the journey worthwhile.
Anybody willing to take bets when there will be bungee-jumping off the center of the bridge?????
