SONO Switch Tower Museum

Our Friends at the Western Connecticut Chapter, National Railway Historical Society

The SONO Switch Tower Museum is located in the fully restored 1896-built Switch Tower in South Norwalk, CT.
Railroads used "towers" to house the mechanism of switching trains from one track to another. These towers were staffed by operators who would actually operate the switch tracks by throwing levers in the tower.
Learn about this unique job and all about railroads at the SONO Switch Tower Museum.
