The state Bond Commission, chaired by Governor Dannel Malloy, this morning approved the purchase of 25 more New Haven Line train cars, ensuring the aging fleet’s replacement by 2014.
At one point member Rep. Sean Williams, R-Oakville, wondered aloud what happens to the hundreds of in some cases four-decades-old train cars.
“We give them to you,” Malloy responded, getting a laugh out of the group and audience.
But what is the final fate of the cars?
According to Judd Everhart, a spokesman for the state Department of Transportation, they’re simply scrapped.
What, they’re not good enough for an artificial reef?
Or Connecticut could erect it’s own Cadillac Ranch.
