Wisconsin - Heritage Historical Village Railroad Depot

New London, WI - The Train Depot at the historical village is the former passenger train depot for the C&NW railroad which was located on East Beacon Avenue. The depot was built in 1923, replacing the original station that dated from the 1870's. In 1905, eight passenger trains per day called at New London. Trains with names such as 'The Flambeau', 'The Twin Cities Express', and 'The Fox River Express' took travelers to cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Ashland.

The last passenger and mail trains came through New London in 1954. Freight trains continued to use the depot until 1982 when the railroad closed the agency. The depot stood empty for several years but was moved to its current location in 1987.

Inside the Depot - The village's Chicago and North Western depot contains displays of railroad artifacts and memorabilia.

View the collection of railroad equipment that includes a diesel engine, boxcar, and two cabooses. Shown to the left and below are a few examples of the museum's exhibits.
