South of Hartford

While Hartford, CT, marks the southern end of the developed trackage on the Springfield Line 2.0, a few miles south of downtown are going to be included in this version too. To the southwest, scenery extends along the Park River for a little bit, that's where version 3 will later continue in direction of New Haven. Southwards along the Connecticut River, a few miles of the Valley div. have been included too, all the way to the Colt Firearms factory and the large CP&L power station, which should provide an interesting background for freight/switching scenarios.

At the Park River in Hartford. The large building to the left is the Aetna Insurance headquarters, looking along the river you can see the Armory just in front of the downtown skyline.
