Current MNCR restriction is 15' 6" or about a foot higher than a FL-9
OK that makes sense. And I should have said the Maybrook was part
of the route only as far as Derby, where traffic would be routed up the Naugy and over the Highland.

Actually, I think that in one of these articles they mention a possible routing to a Harlem Division connection at Brewster, in which case they would use a decent chunk of the Maybrook. Doesn't make much sense when you consider the current station arrangements at Danbury, though... but then again neither do the bi-levels.
