That's pretty significant.I rode the first New Haven train in, plus had the railfan window to myself, other than a MN person who was accomodating to my photography. In New Haven our initial trainset crapped out so we pulled back to the platform and switched to the train that was supposed to be the trailing local. MN got the GCT riders another train.
