Mr Statkowski, Mr Sullivan, I was doing some research on the Cedar Hill Yard and ran across an interesting post on freight. Specifically the delivery of freight along the CT shoreline including the Bridgeport sidings, spurs and yards. Here's the excerpt:rsullivan wrote:Mr. Statkowski. I spend sometimes as much as 16 to 20 hours a day researching various topics, and when I come across something I hadn't heard of before I have to pause and read that one then continue. So I really appreciate reading about seven new topics while trying to find out the who, when, and where of That Film. I have had to reply on several occassion that my tongue was pushing out my cheek while writing some responses on several threads. I had to share my ignorance on someone producing a parody of "The Effects of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" concerning the McGinnis era, and that I took Mr. Abramson's post at first as the first humor of his I recalled on the Forum strengthened by your deadpan response. It was the team action, with you as the straight man, that nailed me. Loved it. Only experiencing the New Haven as a passenger from Meriden to Hartford to go on the Ranger Andy Show I think in 1959, my disappointment when my father finally to me to work on a Saturday and there were no trains just a building in '58 or '59 (he was an engineer), seeing the occasional train on the Valley Branch when I walked the right-of-way from what I now know was the North Cromwell Station (thanks to the Forum) to downtown Cromwell where the freighthouse still stood, and seeing the string of reefers (I think at Wethersfield) and the Turbo Train in a yard somewhere in Hartford between '68 and '71 (when I received an invitation to work for the Army) while driving along I-91, I learn so much here on the Forum, especially from the railroaders themselves. Plus Mr. Abramson's outstanding layout with the two samples of Bridgeport posted here (drifting back) along with the modeling works and layouts of all the other contributors, makes me check the Forum about ten or so times a day for anything new that was posted.
