On The Tracks of Nostalgia and Discovery

I had the pleasure of rediscovering some of the nostalgic train spots that I haven't visited since my college days. Living in Connecticut has its perks, and having a car allows me to embark on these journeys of reminiscence. Alongside revisiting old haunts, I also ventured to explore new locales along State Street by the Hartford/Springfield Line in New Haven and North Haven.

Weekends always seem to bring about intriguing moments, especially for a rail nut like myself. Today's highlight was spotting an Amtrak Vermonter consist adorned with three P42 engines, accompanied by a friendly wave from the engineer (you'll have to slow it down to see his hand) Additionally, there was the sight of what appeared to be a CT Rail train with Mafersa coach car leading the way with a distinctive RS2M horn—commonly associated with the Metro North, New Haven, Hudson, and Harlem Lines.

This is the epitome of railfan nerddom.
