So on Friday i took Amtrak form Newark Penn Station to Boston South Station...snapped alot of photos through CT and thought id share. Overall i did like your state , but you could use some improvements like around the station and Bridgeport....reminds me of Camden with all the un-tapped land. New Haven's Size surprised me , looked tiny form 95.

Starting in Cos Cob and ending in Pawtucket....

Bridgeport's fine the way it is: the station, ferry, arena, and ballpark (harbor yard) are all grouped together in like a little complex. Not like anyone's gonna come visit Bridgeport anyways, the only time they do is for the vibes festival, and the shuttle to seaside park picks them up from the station.

Great pictures btw!

Great pics. I used to take the 170 regularly from Bridgeport to Providence when I lived in CT. The tracks definitely take you through a less flattering part of Bport. The north end is much nicer.

That stretch from New London eastward through southern RI is probably my favorite on the whole northeast route, especially in the summer. Just miles of beautiful coastline! That's where the train really gets to pick up speed too.

You be surprised , alot of ppl might. People are getting tired of the larger cities , so some of the smaller cities could capitalize off of this. Bridgeport , Hartford , Providence and Worcester are just a few who can really get something good out of a tourism increase.

Ah , ic. Yea i noticed that , probably later this decade it will look different. It seems to be getting more dense along the line , more condos going up around stations form what i can see. Stamford was a shock.... New London and east was really nice , but i wasn't on the Sound side.

Here's the rest....

New London and the Connecticut River

Nexis4Jersey - I think the pictures you post are not of the Connecticut River. The Amtrak line crosses the Connecticut River in Old Saybrook but I think the pictures you show are in New London and Groton. The big double bridge you show is the Gold Star Bridge which carries I-95 between New London and Groton. That river would be the Thames River. Jay
