Metro North is explaining to Danbury Branch commuters about why they've had so many buses running on the line, and why there have been so many delays.  Metro-North has started a diesel locomotive overhaul program, with the first rolling out at the end of the year.  It will take a few years for the full fleet to be in service.  A brochure was left on train car seats telling commuters that this program will bring more reliability to the Danbury Branch.  On time performance in the past year has been hovering between 85 and 90 percent, some being blamed on late connections from the New Haven line.
