Thank you Paul!

I look foward to every new post to this thread. Especially Melgar's informative narrative and historical perspective. But there was another portion of the NH that hasn't been explored. That being the Cedar hill to Maybrook segment with its heavy steam roster and long freight drags through Connecticut over the Poughkeepsie bridge spanning the Hudson River to the interchange yard at Maybrook. And to continue my constant plea, please we need an RK Imperial I-5!The interest in this thread is proof enough that it would sell out.

Thanks Tom. I appreciate your comment. But it's usually up to Brian to revive the thread after it's been quiet for a few days. Then I reply! As for the Maybrook Line, since it was freight only, I guess it is considered to have been much less glamorous than New Haven's main line with its famous passenger trains, electric and steam locomotives, and catenary between New Haven and New York City. They did run some impressive engines on the Maybrook Line including Santa Fe types (2-10-2) and later ALCO FAs. It seems to me that there is little modeling of the Maybrook Line among New Haven fans. A model of the Poughkeepsie bridge would be spectacular but no one has accepted that challenge as far as I know. And, although I have a Weaver I-5 Hudson, I would certainly be a buyer of an MTH Premier, Sunset/3rd Rail or Lionel model.
