Toys for Tots Event!

The RMNE and Naugatuck Railroad are proud to partner with the United States Marine Corps once again in their annual Toys for Tots drive!

We will be running a special train on Saturday November 20th to 4 different stops along our line collecting toys to bring the joy of Christmas to the less fortunate youth across America!

The schedule for our 2021 Toys for Tots train is as follows:

12:00-12:45pm: Torrington: Church Street across from Christmas Village.

1:00-1:30pm: East Litchfield: East Litchfield Road South, just east of Johnson Rd. Exit 42 on Rt 8.

2:00-2:45pm: Thomaston: Railroad Museum of New England’s Thomaston Station, 242 E Main St.

3:15-4:00pm: Waterville: Fascia’s Chocolate Factory, 44 Chase River Road

In 2020, we collected 15 full bins of toys, a total of approximately 1,500 toys!

Our goal for 2021 is to fill our express car, approximately 20 bins worth!
