Join the Railroad Museum of New England as they travel through the beautiful Naugatuck Valley, following the Naugatuck River on our historic, 1920s era passenger cars pulled by one of our vintage diesel locomotives. On this train ride you will experience breathtaking autumn views from the Thomaston Dam and ride alongside the Naugatuck River. Included in this ride is a stop at the RMNE’s very own Pumpkin Patch, where riders will be able to get off, and kids will be allowed to pick out their very own pumpkin.
*Please arrive at the station 30 minutes before your departure time. Trains leave at the scheduled times at 10 am, 12 noon and 2 pm. Click HERE for tickets, dates and specific times on the available dates.
