THE TOWN OF WINFIELD
The Town of Winfield along the UC&SV route consists of flatlands and the beginning of the eastbound grade up “Richfield Hill” at East Winfield . Total mileage in the Town is 6.59 miles between mileposts 280.22 and 286.81. Below are just a few of the scenic highlights in the Town.

Just east of “New milepost” 283 is the locale of East Winfield. East Winfield once had a water tower and feed pipe for the water the steam engines required. The grade up “Richfield Hill” is a short distance ahead and the steam engines would work hard and use extra water as they worked their way towards “Chepachet” and Cedarville Station.
