The Danbury Railway Museum has a special Father's Day planned.

At the tender age of 5, my grandson Bradley is already a major league train buff and a member of the Danbury Railway Museum where he knows the names of both employees and interns.

Bradley wanted me to let you know that this Sunday, June 16 is Father's Day and the Danbury Railway Museum has a special vintage passenger car on display plus they'll be offering free train rides to all fathers with a child's paid admission from 12:30 to 3:30 pm.

According to, the beautifully restored observation passenger car from the 20th Century Limited on display is the sole survivor of the Tonawanda Valley series built for the New York Central Railroad in 1928.

This Father's Day is your chance to board the Railway Local and take a short ride in a 1920's passenger coach or a vintage caboose as you ride through the historic rail yard. Their magnificent model trains will be chugging along inside the Danbury Railway Museum and the fully-stocked gift shop will be open.
