Travel the rails in style on a scenic excursion from this historic railroad museum
Take a train trip to a chocolate factory, check out a bright-red caboose built in 1921, listen to the whistle from a steam locomotive as you glide by scenic woods and through a river valley: Those are just some of the fun experiences waiting for visitors to the Railroad Museum of New England, where you’ll step back in time to the heyday of the region’s rich railroading tradition. Travel on the Naugatuck Railroad in a vintage car, styled in its appropriate era. Special excursions celebrate the Easter Bunny and the winter holidays (with Santa and Mrs. Claus), and take you to a pick-your-own-pumpkin patch. There are also fall foliage, chocolate and spirit-sipping trips. At the Thomaston Station, there are educational exhibits and trains and other equipment to explore.
