Unlike the New Haven Line or New Canaan Branch, the Danbury branch is not electrified and uses diesel locomotives in push-pull operation. Usually, the diesels push the trains towards Grand Central Station, and pull towards Danbury. All of the rolling stock cars are Shoreliner series cars, powered by GE Genesis or Brookville BL20-GH locomotives.

Famous quotes containing the words rolling and/or stock:
“He says the waves in the ships wake
are like stones rolling away.
I dont see it that way.”
—Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
“In the case of our main stock of well-worn predicates, I submit that the judgment of projectibility has derived from the habitual projection, rather than the habitual projection from the judgment of projectibility. The reason why only the right predicates happen so luckily to have become well entrenched is just that the well entrenched predicates have thereby become the right ones.”
—Nelson Goodman (b. 1906)
