Train Ride To the Pumpkin Patch at the Railroad Museum of New England in Thomaston

Take a trip and enjoy the wonderful views and colors of autumn throughout the upper Naugatuck Valley on our Pumpkin Patch Trains! These special trains will bring you down to Waterville, where the beautiful Naugatuck River closely follows the tracks, crossing under in several places allowing for great views of the river and surrounding scenery. Returning back up through Thomason, visitors will be able to get a view like no other from the face of the Thomaston Dam, looking down on the valley and river below. From here the train, will continue north through several magnificent rock cuts up to the summit, offering more views of the autumn scenery before returning to Thomaston Station. During the Pumpkin Patch trains, visitors will also make a stop at the RMNE’s very own pumpkin patch. Here, kids will be able to go out and select their very own pumpkin to bring home. This ride is very popular, especially among younger kids and runs in the weeks leading up to Halloween. The ride runs about 1 hour and 20 minutes in length.
