Guilford is a passenger rail station along the Shore Line East commuter railroad between Stamford and New London, Connecticut. Guilford is also a station on the northern section of the Northeast Corridor. Amtrak does not stop at this station but Amtrak trains can often be seen passing this station.[1] The current station, with ADA-compliant high-level side platforms, opened on November 28, 2005, replacing an earlier nearby station with low-level platforms.[2]

Parking

Ridership increases have rendered the parking lot at Guilford insufficient. There is a plan to add 90 spaces on the opposite side of the tracks in 2009.[3]

Other train stations in Guilford

Guilford Center was not the only part of Guilford with a train station. Leete's Island station, located off CT-146 near the Branford line, served the Penn Central and later Amtrak Clamdigger service until 1972. Sachem's Head station, which was also located off CT-146 closer to Guilford Center, was closed in 1969.
