Despite the cancellation of Main Street Marketplace due to rain on Wednesday night, the Railroad Museum of New England is still sponsoring the Torrington Twilight Express.  We are looking forward to another scenic excursion into the Litchfield Hills and up the Naugatuck Valley tomorrow.  The museum is sponsoring special rides with their 1920’s restored passenger coaches.  Train service is provided by the Naugatuck Railroad.

The excursion train will leave Thomaston Station at 5pm and arrive at Water Street in Torrington at 5:45.  The train will leave Torrington at 6pm and return to Thomaston at 6:45pm.

However, the East Litchfield Shuttle, originally scheduled at 6pm, has been cancelled.
