Next phase of former Mill Plain railroad station restoration under way

The next phase of the restoration of the former Mill Plain railroad station is under way.  The 1881-built station was relocated to the Danbury Railway Museum’s railroad yard in 2018.  The roof is now under construction and the next step is the restoration of the canopy.  Original components have been saved but some of the missing brackets that supported the canopy, as well as missing canopy rafters, are being reconstructed to match the originals. The restoration of the canopy has been estimated by the museum’s contractor to be about $20,000.  Museum officials want to get the roof waterproofed and shingled to protect the original walls.  Additional restoration work includes a new floor, doors and windows, along with rebuilding the bay window area.  Siding repair, electrical work, and repainting the interior and exterior is also needed.  The Danbury Railway Museum is a non-profit organization, staffed solely by volunteers.
