Great pictures taken on the Valley Railroad which operates between Essex, Deep River and Chester, Connecticut. It should be noted however that "New Haven" #3025 is not an actual New Haven Railroad steam locomotive, of which none have been preserved. #3025 is actually a China Railways SY 2-8-2 locomotive which was purchased and rebuilt by the Valley Railroad to resemble a New Haven J-1 Mikado type. The Connecticut Valley Railroad between Hartford and Saybrook Point was completed in 1871 and absorbed into the New Haven Railroad in 1892. The Valley Railroad runs on the original right of way along the Connecticut River.
