Study Background - A review of the previous studies
The Danbury Branch Electification Feasibility study is a result of
a number of factors including the branch’s past history, which
provided electrified service between 1925 and 1961, the results of
previous studies, which recommended electrification, infrastructure,
and service improvements to the branch, and support from the two regional
planning organizations (the South Western Regional Planning Agency
and the Housatonic Valley Council of Elected Officials), who are interested
in bringing improvements to the branch and for its customers.
