Welcome to the Railroad Museum of New England - Fun for the Whole Family!
All aboard for a scenic train ride on the Naugatuck Railroad! We begin operations again Sunday, May 24 with our Summer Train Service featuring one hour and 15 minute train rides on Sundays at Noon and 2:00 PM and on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM. Check our ticket calendar for dates and times. And don't miss this year's first Haight-Brown Vineyard Express wine tasting train ride on opening day! Sunday, May 24 at 2:00 PM, Adults Only, one passenger car reserved for this event.
YOUR RIDE THROUGH HISTORY begins at our historic 1881 Thomaston Station. Board our restored vintage passenger coaches and prepare to see a side of the Naugatuck Valley that you just can't get from your car! Your train ride along the scenic Naugatuck River hugs the river's edge, passing through state forest lands and south to pass by the site of Waterbury's brass mills, where thousands of men and women toiled daily in the "Brass City."
We complete our journey with a ride across and view of the Litchfield Hills from the spectacular Thomaston Dam. Leave time to tour the displays at our depot and explore the charming village of Thomaston.
