Notes
Survey number HAER CT-160-B
Building/structure dates: 1946 initial construction
Significance: The Work Equipment Shop recalls the increased investment in the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad's facilities in the period immediately following World War II. In addition to this shop, the railroad used some of the money it had earned in wartime service to build large new buildings for the General Stores department and for diesel maintenance. The steel framing of the shop is typical of mid-twentieth century industrial construction.
