THIS IS STUPID. They should just throw the old pocket back in at Bridgeport and be done with it.

Anyone know anything about the trestle? When did it last get service? This reminds me of the old trestle just before Shell long disconnected from Track 3.
Bridgeport took the first step...
I'm pretty sure the trestle is the one right in between the powerhouse on the property and the mainline. There's a connection on the spur for (what went to) the old Bridgeport freight yards. One line of the spur served the Remington complex on Barnum, the other part branches off at Seaview ave and follows a creek up to the old GE plant location on the Post Road.

Yeah, there's two of them. I remember talking with Rich Cizik from the CT Eastern RR Museum about them a few years back. Seemed like he was interested in them. I don't know how far he got in finding the owner or anything, considering they're still sitting there and the only lead I had to any of the doings at the old Remington plant moved down to Florida for medical reasons. I'd look for the PMs, but my account was deleted, as was Rich's from the looks of it. Inactivity, I assume. Eh, ya snooze ya lose.
