It wasn't necessarily scheduled for an "inspection" run. It was likely the flu train going to the different work sites on the Hudson line. They were in GCT this morning and Highbridge late afternoon.

Was riding on the head end of the 11:07 out of GCT and I saw the Inspection Train on the move going toward Stamford. Saw it in the Rowayton area on Track1 around 12:05. Consist was a new paint Gennie leading with 3 cars and a New Haven Brookville unit trailing.
