ABOUT THIS FEED:
Norwalk, CT, is located on the Northeast Corridor (NEC), between Washington, D.C., and Boston, via Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, Trenton, Newark, New York City, New Haven, and Providence. This is the New York City-Boston section, formerly the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad (New Haven, NH, or NYNH&H for short). Specifically, this is the junction at South Norwalk, where the Danbury Line (to the eponymous Danbury, CT), diverges/splits off of the NEC, and this is at milepost 41.3; to the west (left) at milepost 41.0 is the station at South Norwalk. Numerous passenger trains can be seen every day, both the Metro-North Commuter Railroad (M-N, MNCR, or MNCW for short) and Amtrak (AMTK), including the “Acela Express”, numerous “Northeast Regionals”, and the “Vermonter”. Metro-North is part of New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). Besides passenger trains continuing towards or coming from Boston, locals coming to/from the Danbury Line can also be seen. This portion of the NEC, from New York City to New Haven, is owned by Metro-North; east of New Haven to Boston, it is owned by Amtrak. Originally, electrification ended at New Haven, but it was extended to Boston in the late 1990’s in preparation for the inauguration of the “Acela Express” service. Norwalk, being between New York City and New Haven, is on the older 12.5 kilovolts (kV) at 60 Hertz (Hz); from New Haven to Boston the newer electrification is 25 kV at 60 Hz.
There are no radio feeds/streams or ATCS layouts/servers available.
