NEW HAVEN, CT
Eastbound Receiving Yard looking toward the Hump at Cedar Hill Yard. Some of the towers that held up catenary still remain. The New Haven didn't have a "hump" per say between receiving yard and class yard, but a gradual grade constructed on entire length of receiving yard tracks creating a down grade on tracks leading to "bowl" in class yard.. Don't know the reason for that..
