Remarks & Notes 
" CT-2 at Bethel " P&W CT-2 passes the former station location in Bethel Connecticut on Metro North's Danbury Branch on the evening of June 16, 2020. With Metro North's "Essential Service Plan" in response to the pandemic, bus service is being substituted for trains in order to proceed with a tie replacement project. The branch is OOS continuously, except for three night a week when the P&W train operates. All the grade crossings don't get placed back in service though, as in this night the three crossings in Bethel were left OOS for the train crew to Stop and Warn (The Mets wording for Stop & Protect).The crossings are all in close proximity of each other, and the conductor has one more crossing to S&W. Never a fun exercise to do with a tonnage train. The train is passing the former station which Metro North stopped using in 1996, moving to a new station about a mile north of town. The old station had been repurposed as a bicycle shop and its latest version is that of a brewery.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
