The next thing we've found after that last bridge is the roadbed in Winsted. It comes into the city on the south side of the river. The former Naugatuck Rwy. station (which the Central New England shared, see Connecticut Railroads, an illustrated history) was at Bridge St, where this gas station is now:
The tracks are fairly visible north of bridge street, as they run by an old factory and then the roadbed is distinguishable. Winsted was important for Naugatuck Railway fans, as there was a turntable for locomotives west of the city. For the Naugy, this was a terminal station. An old railroad signal and a historic place marker on the Central roadbead explain all of this, although the CNE doesn't even get a mention. The next picture we have is before going up the mountain into Norfolk, in Colebrook.
