Rich Green's fabulously detailed maps are much better than any railroad timetable. I have timetables from a few northeast railroads, but all are out of date.

I still think it's funny how my Shore Line map is still better than anything Amtrak's track engineering department has generated in the last 10 years (straight from the mouth of one of their employees!), but if they use it as a source document, that's at their own risk.....
Once I finish Norwich to the CT/MA state line on P&W and NECR, there will be a new release coming out for the entire state of CT.
Remember that when Conrail took over, they renamed all of the interlockings in MNRR territory to fit their scheme, and those names have stuck. So instead of CP 3, the old timetables will have NICK.I believe that was a Metro North decision. A Conrail produced map from the 1990s showing its trackage rights on MNRR used all of the old Penn Central interlocking names and I have a picture of NICK tower with the sign in Conrail blue. See Also, this photo inside the SoNo Tower Museum showing yet another Conrail Blue interlocking nameplate.
