Looks like the remnants of Hurricane Ida wreaked some havoc on the Valley Line...
Apologies for the bad cellphone pic, but this is a major washout of the line where it goes past the TPC golf course in Cromwell, CT. Here are additional photos from the eweather site:
I'm afraid there will be no Valley Local through here for a while. :^(
Thankfully, unlike years past when I've had major flooding in my basement, all we had this time was a puddle. So at least the HO scale version of the Valley Local can continue to operate.
As an antidote to the pic above, here are some recent photos taken along the miniature version of the Valley Line recently (originally posted on the Valley Local Facebook group, which you should join if you haven't already :^)
