Portland CT Railroad Remnants

I was in the area and as always, curious about what kind of railroad presence still exists. A quick ride through the industrial area south of Rt 66 (Marlborough Street) showed there are still tracks and a few hoppers on a siding. Of course the street I drove on was called Airline Street--named after the Airline route that whizzed through here ages ago.
