When Jeanne Iannocone gets on her homebound train from Stamford each evening, she can see a train follow closely behind hers on a parallel track.
Iannocone’s train stops in Bridgeport, everyone gets off, then she gets on the train that’s been following them from Stamford in order to continue the trek up the Waterbury branch of the Metro North train line.
