Unveiling of Connecticut Company Car 1326


Oct. 1st

 

Join us for the unveiling of the newly-restored Connecticut Company Car 1326.

Galen Semprebon, CT Trolley Museum President, and CTM volunteers will unveil Connecticut Company Car #1326 after a 4 year restoration project.

This is your opportunity to get up close and personal with the project and be one of the first visitors to ride the car. The unveiling will be held on October 1st, 2016 at 11am.

The car was built in 1910 by the Osgood Bradley Company of Worcester, Mass. as a 30' closed wooden car with side seating.

An official Connecticut Company roster of the early 1930's shows the car located in Waterbury, CT where it ran until June 19, 1937.

The car was later moved to New Haven and operated there until the end of the trolley service, then came to the trolley museum in 1948 after 38 years of service with the Connecticut Company.

Rails To The Darkside

Ride the rails into the dark countryside and hear the story of the cemetery on the property and what happens when you dig it up. Can your heart take it, come ride and see what everyone is talking about.

If you want to be scared half to death, Rails to the Darkside is for you.

This event is geared toward adults, it is not recommended for young children.

Pumpkin Patch
