The tracks have been cleared of weeds in the middle of the tracks looking both ways as far as I could see and I saw where the flanges made their marks at Jordan Lane crossing. Does anyone know what might have come through?
They've been doing brush clearing and spraying for the last couple years on the line, so probably was a hi-rail truck. Just keeping the vegetation from destroying the infrastructure. The state would still like
to get some service back on this line, but freight projects like the substantial Willimantic Branch upgrades and continuing the piecemeal upgrades to the Armory Branch are a lot higher on the pecking order for scarce funding because the business is there and growing today, not tomorrow ("?").
