Welcome to the Railroad Museum of New England
Next Stop - THE EASTER BUNNY EXPRESS!
Saturday, April 4, 2015
YOUR RIDE THROUGH HISTORY begins at our historic 1881 Thomaston Station. Board our restored, heated vintage passenger coaches and prepare to see a side of the Naugatuck Valley that you just can't get from your car! Your 80 minute 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 from the spectacular Thomaston Dam. Leave time to tour the displays at our depot and explore the charming village of Thomaston.
Presented by the volunteers of the Railroad Museum of New England. Our mission is to tell the story of the region's rich railroad heritage through our educational exhibits and our operation of the Naugatuck Railroad.
