The Housatonic Railroad Company (HRRC), a privately owned company based in Canaan, CT, provides freight service on the line between Danbury, CT and Pittsfield, MA, as well as along the Maybrook Line from Danbury to Southeast, NY. HRRC has proposed adding passenger service on the rail line they use, which would between Pittsfield, MA and New Milford, CT, and on to Danbury, CT. From there the line continues west to Southeast, NY, a station on Metro North’s Harlem Line. Upon arrival at Southeast, Housatonic has proposed that some trains continue on directly into Grand Central Station under the operational control of Metro North, while others would stop at Southeast and passengers would cross a platform and board Metro North trains. Following this route enables the proposed service to take advantage of faster transit times between Southeast and Grand Central.
