Rail riders on the Danbury branch line will be taking buses this weekend. Buses will replace all trains between Danbury and South Norwalk on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 9-10, and Nov. 16-17.

Trains are being replaced to allow railroad tie replacement work.

Metro-North says buses will operate as much as 20 minutes earlier than scheduled trains.
