General Information

Built as a railroad depot in 1912, the Center Rutland Depot is a recognized historical landmark in the region. The Center Rutland Depot is located just west of Rutland , Vermont where the active rails of the Vermont Rail System pass. The westbound rails of the former Delaware and Hudson Railroad are on one side of the depot and the northbound tracks of the former Rutland Railroad are on the other side. Current rail traffic includes both local and long-distance freight as well as the daily Rutland to New York City 'Ethan Allen Express' operated by Amtrak.

The depot is now a museum that displays hundreds of rare antique model trains, photographs, signs and diverse charming memorabilia saved from an earlier time, including the former Rutland Railroad caboose #45. The museum collection has a significant contribution of the Henry Carris Collection. The Carris family remains one of the Museum and Railway Association's major supporters.

Children of all ages will also delight in the miniature N scale model railroad and the room-sized HO scale display that can run several trains at the same time.
