Album Info:Guilford Rail System, now known as Pan Am Railways serves Connecticut based from their Plainville, CT yard. With their PL-1 train (called PLED/EDPL on Amtrak) they make a run to/from E Deerfield when necessary, normally once a week, to pick up/drop off their cars. A run to Waterbury and onto The Metro North Railroad Waterbury Branch also occurs once per week, normally Wednesdays. Chasing this train through it's territory was definitely my favorite chase! I definitely plan to chase again! Michael Foley YonkersRails
