We are in Thomaston, where we have the opportunity to look at and ride the Northern Lights Limited, which is operated by the Naugatuck Railroad, in conjunction with the Railroad Museum of New England. This was the last day of operation for the season. In the first scene, we see the train itself as it sits in Thomaston Station prior to the first run of the day. U23B 2203 is on the north end of the train, followed by a pair of former heavyweight coaches, a wooden caboose, two more heavyweight coaches, and FL9 2019 on the south end. The reason for the caboose is there are two Santas on the train; one visits the families in the two cars behind the 2203, the other visits the families in the two cars behind the 2019. At the 2:20 mark, we take a ride in the 2019 from Thomaston Station to the end of operating limits at Chase Yard a few miles down the track. Along the way, we pass the shops for the Naugatuck Railroad, and get a good look at some of the equipment in the yard, which includes New Haven RS3 529, FL9 2002 (the engine which is the namesake for my username here), and BUDD RDC 41. We also cross the Naugatuck River a couple of times, as well as some grade crossings. Enjoy the sweet sounds of the rev of the 16-567C of the 2019, as well as the nice sounding K5LA. At the 21:54 mark, we depart back north toward the big dam beyond Thomaston Station from the 2203. Enjoy the sound of the chug of the 7FDL12, as well as the mellow sounding Leslie S3K horn. At the 38:07 mark, we see the train at Frost Bridge Road as it heads over the grade crossing as it goes south. Listen to the nice echo of the K5LA from the 2019. At the 40:05 mark, we're at the grade crossing again for the trip back north. This time, we get to hear the Leslie S3K of the 2203 as it echoes through the valley. At the 42:18 mark, we ride the coaches and see all the happy kids as Santa walks through the train with his elves, spreading cheer to all on board. What a wonderful thing, to see all the happy children, both young and old. You're never too old to enjoy a train ride. Happy holidays to all, and hope you've enjoyed the ride.
