Bloomfield Branch

Leading into the hills and forests northwest of Hartford is the Bloomfield Branchline. It runs from Hartford Union Station to the small town of Bloomfield and onwards to its terminus at Griffins, a small settlement. In northeast Hartford there are a dozen or so industries that generate some traffic for the NH, but outside of Hartford it gets rather quiet very quickly. Bloomfield has a freight house and a siding that the few local industries can use as a team track, halfways along on the way to Griffins is another fairly large industry. Griffins itself generates no regular freight traffic, just the occasional car for local enterprises or seasonal agricultural traffic (tobacco!).
