Train Show 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
at the Valley Railroad!

One Railroad Avenue
Essex, CT


Thanks to the popularity of our 2016 reunion, we return to the Valley Railroad in Essex, CT for our 2017 Annual Reunion and Train Show! This exciting venue, central to the New Haven Railroad region, offers reunion attendees the opportunity to ride the Valley Railroad's steam train, boat train and the Essex Clipper dinner train! Reunion participants will again have the opportunity to dine on the dinner train at the same special fare as offered for our 2016 reunion!

Train Show

Our Train Show will be held in the River Valley Junction Building. Our show will features model trains and railroad memorabilia for sale, model railroad workshops and presentations of New Haven films and slides. Please Note: Since the Valley Railroad's facilities are state-owned, we cannot directly charge admission to the River Valley Junction Building. We do, however, suggest a donation of $5.00 to help defray the costs of our Reunion. Thanks!
