Waterbury special train art movie

“The Waterbury Special,” created by Randolph sculptor Phil Godenschwager, depicts a train whose cars are structures in downtown Waterbury. From left, the components are: steam locomotive, Central Vermont Railroad station, Grange Hall, Waterbury High School, Green Mountain Seminary, White Meeting House, One South Main, WDEV Block, Janes House, Cooley Manufacturing Co.

A behind-the-scenes video of “The Waterbury Special,” detailing the making of the art installation on the train bridge near the Route 2-100 roundabout, premieres with a showing Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. in the Steele Community Room at the Waterbury Municipal Office, 28 North Main St. The 60 foot long LED-lit aluminum sculpture, created by Randolph sculptor Phil Godenschwager in 2018, depicts a train whose cars are different structures prominent in downtown Waterbury. The video was filmed and produced by Offbeat Bryce Productions. Godenschwager and videographer Bryce Douglass will be on hand to answer questions after the viewing. Refreshments will be served at the event, which is presented by Revitalizing Waterbury in partnership with the Waterbury Historical Society, the Rotary Club of Vermont, and the American Legion.
