Car Wash Facility (Project No. 301-0131)

A new car wash facility for the portion of the commuter rail fleet stored in New Haven will be constructed on the site of the EMU Shop with access to the east end of the yard and located so that trains can access any yard storage track after washing.   This fully enclosed, all weather facility will contain a single-track wash bay and a support area for wash equipment. This facility will extend the service life of the rolling stock and enhance the appearance of the rail cars. 

The car wash will have the following characteristics:

  • Be bi-directional
  • Recycle wash water
  • Be located to provide direct access to both the West End Yard and the 60’s Yard, and
  • Provide for convenient truck access for deliveries.
