Here is a video clip of the new Housatonic rail track being delivered to the Berkshires for upgrades to the line. Once these upgrades are complete, the Housatonic Line will have the capacity for passenger service, as well as existing freight service.
Modern welded rail track comes in 1/4-mile sections so moving it is quite a process! As the special cars roll along, pieces of rail are off-loaded and will later be installed in place of the old jointed rail.
