16 people attended and enjoyed the ride and the museum, although we did not get an M-8 train in either direction.
Join us for an enjoyable daytrip co-sponsored by the New York Railroad Enthusiasts to the Danbury Railway Museum on September 23. We will take a Metro-North New Haven Line train from Grand Central Terminal to Danbury, Connecticut. The Danbury station is next to the museum. You will have more than three hours to tour the museum’s various facilities, including (subject to availability) a ride on the railyard local. Afterwards we will catch a return train to Grand Central.
Please arrive at Grand Central no later than 10:55 AM We will meet on the third car from the south end of the 11:07 am to New Haven (the end closest to the waiting room and ticketing area). That train is scheduled to arrive in South Norwalk at 12:06 PM, where we change trains to a shuttle that leaves South Norwalk at 12:11 PM and arrives in Danbury at 1:02 PM. There will be no lunch because the eating facilities at the museum are limited. We recommend you buy your lunch at one of the many Grand Central food venues and eat aboard the train. If things go according to schedule, we should leave Danbury on the 4:43 PM shuttle, arriving (with a change at South Norwalk) at Grand Central at 6:43 PM.
Join us for a very special train ride and railway museum experience. The ticket price is only $35 and includes roundtrip transportation on Metro-North between Grand Central and Danbury, plus your admission to the Danbury Railway Museum (including a ride on the railyard local). The cost of any lunch, of course, will be at your own expense.
