Ponemah Mills Engine 1386 never got this much TLC in her working lifetime.

Now that she is retired she especially enjoys the seasonal makeover... (she told us so)









Next open dates: Fri. Dec. 4th, Sat. 5th and Sun. 6th @ 5pm - 9pm


Every bulb, every lite-string, every display will be lit and beckoning you to stop by and celebrate these magical days with us. Bring your family, your friends, your neighbors and get into that special zone that only the Holiday Season can induce - before the shopping gets burdensome and frantic, before the snow flies and before the bitter cold settles in for the duration. It just might set the tone for you and get you digging in the attic for your decorations and Charlie Brown Trees. Come on down and join in on the fun. We will - quite literally - leave the lights on for you...









We had such an unpredicted and inspiring response to our Pumpkin Patch photo

contest that we have decided to replicate it for our season ending WinterFest event!

Become a Motorman or give the unique gift of a "Guest Motorman Certificate" to a

family member or BFF that is difficult to buy for - they'll never forget it or you ;-)



 We have the best looking Santa this side of the Missouri Flats...


The Visitor Center hosts trains, trains and more trains - they run continously during WinterFest until PMI's need to be scheduled and we try to do that during the week...


 Anyone have  a "binky" to lend this little guy for the duration...

 Always time to take a break. How about some popcorn and a hot chocolate. We make

the very best fresh popcorn and all for a very nominal price... try some!



Lots of photos being taken - don't forget our "WinterFest Photo Contest"


 The decorating for WinterFest has begun in full force...

The Connecticut Trolley Museum invites you to take a journey back in time and experience the transportation of yesterday. The museum features a variety of streetcars from the 1890s to 1950s, many of which are available for rides. At the Connecticut Trolley Museum, we provide a historically accurate educational and entertaining experience through the interpretation, preservation, restoration and operation of an electric railway.
