With all the talk about modeling Old Saybrook structures, it's really pretty cool that not only is the Old Saybrook station still being used as an actual real-live railroad passenger station, the old freight house is still being used too - as a pizza restaurant!

|The old freight house got moved (back in the mid/late 1980s IIRC) and tacked on to the west end of the passenger station building. Freight house cum pizza restaurant in the foreground, station further back.|
|There are not one, but two large layouts up in the 2nd floor dining area, connected by a looooong shelf. This one was a little awkward to get to, since the table there was full of people.|
|This other layout is at the top of the stairs, and always accessible.|
Between the models, Amtrak, and ShoreLineEast trains, there's plenty to see. A stop by the PizzaWorks is a great compliment to a visit to the Essex Steam Train just up the road.
Oh, and the pizza is great too!
