The Metro-North Railroad has many tenant carriers, including Amtrak, CP Rail, CSX, Guilford (Springfield Terminal), P&W, and Housatonic. Metro-North has trackage rights only on the Housatonic between the NY/CT State Line and Danbury, CT. While this route rarely sees any activity, it was very busy the first week in May 2001 with excursions and training trains. Here are some photos.
