Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Danbury and Norwalk Railroad was an independent American railroad that operated between its namesake cities in Connecticut from 1852 until its absorption by the Housatonic Railroad in 1887. The right of way established by the D&N continues in operation and is now known as the Danbury Branch of the New Haven Line of the Metro-North Railroad. The Danbury and Norwalk Railroad was chartered May 1835 as the Fairfield County Railroad. The objective of the railroad was to build from Danbury to somewhere on Long Island Sound. The backers wanted to end Danbury's isolation. Professor Alexander C. Twining of Yale University was hired to conduct a survey. Several options were researched, and Professor Twining recommended the route following the Norwalk River.show more
