METRO NORTH Danbury Busing Info

READ: METRO NORTH Danbury Busing Info

Bus service has replaced train service on the Danbury Branch until further notice due to extensive storm-related damage to the right-of-way in the vicinity of Bethel.

The significant washout (where the stones supporting our tracks are literally washed away leaving no foundation to support the tracks) south of Bethel was caused by the torrential rains of over four inches that hit our area on March 6-7.

Because of the heavy rainfall, we performed a special patrol of the track, and discovered at around 2 AM last Monday morning the washout was severe enough to halt Danbury train operations through the area.........
