The Danbury Railway Museum is located in the historic 1903 train station and railroad yard in downtown Danbury, Connecticut. Founded in 1994, the Museum preserves, restores, and operates vintage New England railroad equipment. Get onboard the "Rail Yard Local" and be transported back in time to the early to mid-20th century, the golden age of railroading. This train ride will bring you past the Museum's ever-growing collection of historic rolling stock, including many rare diesel engines and one-of-a-kind pieces like the Boston and Maine Railroad's steam locomotive. The Museum also features the only operating turntable in Connecticut. See more at: http://web.mta.info/mnr/html/getaways/outbound_danbury.htm
