The Railroad Museum of New England’s Speaker Series continues later this month with a presentation by Gary Gurski, who worked for 22 years from 1970 to 1992 on the Penn Central, Conrail, and Providence and Worcester railroads. The event will be held at Thomaston Station, 242 East Main Street, Thomaston, on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 4:00PM. The presentation is free and open to the public.
According to RMNE President Steve Casey, Mr. Gurski will share his experiences with a slide show as brakeman, conductor, and engineer on the Hartford to Springfield Line, Canal Line from New Haven to Holyoke, Highland Line from Waterbury through Bristol to Plainville, and the Naugatuck Line from Derby through Waterbury to Torrington.
The Railroad Museum of New England is a Section 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, all volunteer, educational and historical organization that dates back to January 1968. The museum concept is more than artifacts: It is also a story of the region and the development of society around the railroad. Our home is located at the landmark Thomaston Train Station. The RMNE and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Naugatuck Railroad, operate on 19.6 miles of track from Waterbury to Torrington leased from the State of Connecticut.
