Train museum celebrates everything from holidays to chocolate and spirits
From holiday excursions to chocolate- and spirit-tasting trips, the Railroad Museum of New England really does have it all for train-lovers. Leaving from the historic Thomaston Station, the Naugatuck Railroad will take you through woods and valleys, over bridges and dams. Special trips include the Easter Bunny Express (meet the big bunny himself); a spirit-tasting excursion with a different tasting every month; a Pumpkin Path train where kids can pick their own pumpkin to bring home; the Chocolate Decadence Tour with a toast at scenic Thomaston Dam and a tour of Fascia’s Chocolate Company; and the holiday-celebrating Northern Lights Limited and Santa Express trains, magical journeys where Santa, Mrs. Claus and singing elves make appearances.
