Kingston to Narragansett Pier

The Narragansett Pier Railroad


GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

The Narragansett Pier Railroad was first chartered in 1868, and was completed in 1876. It ran from the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad mainline in Kingston to Narragansett Pier, at a length of about 8 miles. Passenger service was strong in its early years, as it served a resort at Narragansett Pier; it also carried freight.

Passenger service along the line ceased in 1952; all operations along this former Class III railroad ended in 1981.
