This morning’s post on commuter advocate John Hartwell was headlined: “He’s Been Working On The Railroad.”
That sent town art curator Kathie Bennewitz scurrying to the Westport Historical Society archives. She found this photo:
It’s undated. But an accompanying note says it shows “construction of Saugatuck RR Bridge.”
The sign on the right says “Slow to 10 M.”
The bridge was built well over a century ago. But Metro-North still slows down every day — unfortunately, everywhere from New Haven to New York.
