In a National Railway Historical Society Bulletin, Edgar T. Mead described a trip to Choate in the 1930's. The article was about a train trip from New York City to Choate School which is located in Wallingford, CT which Meade made in 1937. In 1988, I wrote an article about what we had lost or gained over 50 years. I then decided to update this for changes over the last 10 years, as well as over the last 60.

The Central New England Railway (CNE) came from northern Connecticut and west across the Hudson River in New York to Maybrook. It crossed the great bridge at Poughkeepsie. It later became part of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad. In the past few years our tours have covered almost all of the old CNE. The 2011 tour will cover the CNE between Simsbury and Norfolk, CT. This section covers some well known wreck sites and also Satan's Kingdom and Winsted.

Newport, Rhode Island is located on Aquidneck Island. The Old Colony & Newport Railway was chartered in 1863 as that islands answer to a demand for a rail connection with the rest of the country. Today, a tourist line and a dinner train survive. The only connection to the mainland is via a bridge over the Sakonnet River towards Fall River. The Newport lines are isolated and have been for a few decades. The Sakonnet drawbridge was damaged and considered a hazard by the Coast Guard. More Rhode Island: P&W Railroad; Quonset Davisville rail terminal.
