How did Connecticut assume ownership of the rail line after the Penn Central/Conrail bankruptcy?

Connecticut purchased the portion of the New Haven Line from the New York border to New Haven in 1985 for $8.5 million.

The price also included three branch lines to Danbury, New Canaan, and Waterbury.

PS- In my recent issue of Westways magazine, there is an Amtrak bus service advert. that goes from LA to Las Vegas making stops at Victorville, San Bernardino and Barstow. It is branded "Amtrak Pacific Surfliner"bus service.

The Pacific Surfliner runs nowhere near Las Vegas!

I thought Amtrak was banned from offering out of state bus service!!!
