DescriptionThe Nauguatuck Railroad’s scenic round trip excursions are an entertaining mix of relaxing river valley scenery and our rich transportation history. It’s an exciting and educational experience for riders of all ages!

The scenic 20-mile round trip ride is one hour and 15 minutes long. All trains depart from Thomaston Station, Thomaston, CT, currently undergoing an extensive restoration to its mid-1950’s appearance.

Vintage Coaches
Relax, and take a step back in time in our restored vintage 1920s coaches. The conductor comes to punch your ticket, and you’re on your way!

Naugatuck River
Heading south, your train travels along the banks of the scenic Naugatuck River. Keep an eye out for all sorts of wildlife along the tracks.

Mattatuck Forest
Along the way, your train will run through the unspoiled Mattatuck Forest, cling to rock cliffs, hug the banks of the Naugatuck River. See a part of Connecticut that can’t be seen from your car!

Historic Brass Mills
Pass among the brick canyons of massive brass mills of Waterville, sentinels of New England's rich industrial heritage.

Thomaston Dam
Heading back north, the highlight of the trip occurs as the train crosses the face of the spectacular Thomaston Dam, high above the spillway and the river valley below.

Gift Shop
Upon return to the station, take time to visit the gift shop and view our selection of railroad-themed mementos and an extensive array of Thomas the Tank merchandise.

Display Track
Visit the display track at Thomaston Station to view a rotating display of some of our vintage railroad equipment from all over New England.

Ask about our birthday party accomodations, our charters and Vintage Express wine tasting events, our Blues Train in October and our "Engineer for an Hour" program.

Memberships are available for all.
