The Danbury Railway Museum will begin the first phase of re-opening on Saturday and Sunday. Vaccinated visitors are asked to wear masks indoors and while riding in the train; others are asked to wear masks at all times. Although the children’s play area will remain closed, the gift shop will be opened upon request to one group at a time.
In the railyard, a number of pieces of equipment will be open including the 1907 B&M steam engine, the Railway Post Office car, the RDC, and a caboose. The “Railyard Local,” a short train ride in the historic Danbury rail yard, pulled by a vintage locomotive, will run both days.
Admission to the museum and train rides will be free during the grand reopening weekend.
All volunteers are vaccinated and will be wearing masks. The Danbury Railway Museum is a non-profit organization, staffed solely by volunteers.
