Located 75 miles from Grand Central, a trip from Seymour station to the city takes a bit over two hours. Because there is no direct service, a transfer is required at either Stamford or most commonly, Bridgeport. The station has all of the Waterbury Branch amenities we’ve come to love: a nice wooden box serving as a low-level platform, and a lack of ticket vending machines. But as a Waterbury Branch rider, there is no additional fee for purchasing your ticket on the train.
Once upon a time (1910), trains to Seymour were this cool.
Other than the aforementioned details, Seymour is a relatively unremarkable station, and not extremely noteworthy for any reason – unless you count homeless people pushing shopping carts. But there is nobody that can tell the story better than Bobby in his post Life on the Waterbury Branch.
