I'm beating the Drums on the Beacon/Maybrook line....if the Central Corridor and Lewiston Commuter Rail can be pushed along , then theres no harm with the Beacon/Maybrook lines. Trackage Replaced and upgraded to 60mph , all Crossings upgraded , Service Hourly , with limited peak service to White Plains from Connecticut/Poughkeepsie and to New Haven from Poughkeepsie/Danbury. DMU's should be purchased here...
