Probably Worcester, down to Groton, NEC to Cedar Hill in New Haven, and handoff at Cedar Hill to CSOR and up the Springfield Line to Hartford Yard. There's no P&W freight on the NEC between Kingston and Groton so not enough crew would be qualified there vs. the mains. And the Air Line + Valley Line requires a backup move in Middletown with the P&W/CSOR division post in Hartford at the switch to the Brainerd Airport spur nowhere near as convenient a place to stage a handoff as inside a proper yard. So preference is probably going to be Springfield Line for the last leg.
