FL9's Live on the Naugy

With FL9s gone from the main line after more than half a century of service, it is reassuring to see at least one of these units still running a regular schedule on former New Haven Railroad trackage. Railroad Museum of New England's former CDOT 2019 (built as NH 2049 in 1960) currently is the regular motive power on Naugatuck Railroad's weekend and Tuesday trains. The unit faces south, and is seen in this view approaching the Connecticut Route 262 grade crossing in Watertown, CT, on August 30. Visiting fans should buy a ticket to help keep this historic locomotive in service. Come ride with us this weekend!
