I grew up on the New Haven Railroad but by the time I became an active rail buff in my early teens New Haven steam operations had ended. However, the Central Vermont remained a steam stronghold for several more years and I was fortunate to witness some of the activity on the New London-Brattleboro Southern Division. Although I moved from New England when I was still young, Central Vermont steam locomotives created a lifelong impression. This web site was created to share some of my collection of Central Vermont steam locomotives with the hope there may be viewers who share my enthusiasm.

FAN TRIPS - My first impression of Central Vermont steam resulted from a Boston-Willimantic-Brattleboro excursion in May 1954. I was just fifteen and had only a little knowledge of railroading so this first close experience with the Central Vermont created a strong bond. Fondness for steam was strengthened by a short ride in the cab of 2-8-0 464 during the engine change at Willimantic. I was very impressed with the large red and yellow Central Vermont emblem on the tender, the red cab doors and windows and the raised yellow numbers on the cab side. I rode a number of steam trips over the Central Vermont while steam lasted and they remain a happy memory.
