Central New England Railroad

Central New England Railroad had several names but started in 1871 and ended in 1927. It ran from Hartford, Connecticut to Millerton, New York. The train came into this High Street Junction (on Dyer Avenue) from Simsbury. The passenger station was on River Road and originally a horse car on tracks brought passengers to and from the Dyer Avenue Station. Eventually, a plan was devised for a WYE and the train BACKED down to River Road to pick up passengers. It then continued west toward New Hartford. The building standing today on Dyer Avenue was the freight station and has been moved a slight distance from its original location.
