There will be connections available in both Danbury and Southeast to Metro-North trains to New York City and other destinations along the New Haven and Harlem Lines. Metro-North service is financially supported by Connecticut and New York. In order for the Housatonic service to operate the trains must travel over Metro-North tracks. Coordination between railroads is normal in the railroad industry and arrangements will be necessary for such things as crew changes so that trains can be handed off seamlessly. Amtrak operates intercity service on the Northeast Corridor and would not be a participant in the proposed service.
