Bridge at Connecticut Valley Railroad State Park

 

The Valley Railroad Company leases the linear state park from the State of Connecticut and offers the visitor a 19th century railroad experience including an 1892 rail road station, steam locomotives, and vintage trains of historic cars. Here you can travel back in time on more than 12 miles of rails departing to the north out of Essex Station and continuing up the historic Connecticut River Valley.
