Have some questions? Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions for quick answers.

What is Zip06?

Zip06 is the digital news division of Shore Publishing covering the towns along the CT shoreline between New Haven and the Connecticut River. It is a community news platform that aims to not only provide up to the minute local news and information but also provides a platform for community engagement where registered users can share opinions, photos and information with their neighbors. Join in the conversation!

Are you connected to my weekly newspaper: the East Haven Courier, the North Haven Courier, The Sound, The Source, Harbor News, or the Valley Courier?

Yes! The newspaper that arrives free each Thursday in your mailbox is created by the same staff that runs Zip06!

Do you publish the Shore Line Times?

No. The Shore Line Times is published by the New Haven Register. You can contact them at 203-789-5200.

Will you publish my stories, photos, or events?

Yes! Registered members of the Zip06 community can contribute stories, photos, and events.

If I submit through Zip06 will my story, photo, or event be printed in my local newspaper?

Not yet! We're still working on making this happen. For now, if you want something to appear both online and in print you should submit to the website and also email news@shorepublishing.com

How do I submit a story or announcement?

If you are a registered user of Zip06, please click here to submit. If you have not yet registered, please click here to do so and then submit away!

What is 'News From You'?

'News From You' is exactly what it sounds like: It's news from you!

This is the special place on Zip06 where all of the news submitted by members of the community winds up. Do you have an article you want to publish? Are you getting married? Did your child make the honor roll? Those are all examples of news from you!

Do I need to create an account?

No. Creating an account with Zip06 is completely optional. You can read all of our stories, browse calendar items, watch videos, and browse photos without ever creating an account.

Some users, however, will want to create an account to submit events to the calendar, post stories and announcements, participate in some online contests, and comment on stories.

The choice is completely yours.

Zip06 accounts are 100% free. Signing up will only cost you a few moments of your time.

Train History in Chester and the Lower CT River Valley

Education/Lectures

Chester Meeting House
Goose Hill Road, Chester, CT

Can you imagine getting on board a train at the Chester Depot and traveling to Middletown or Old Saybrook? In 1871, you would’ve had a choice of two morning trains and two late afternoon trains to take from Chester. What happened to them?

Max Miller, who has become well known around the state as the Connecticut Valley Railroad Historian, will talk about the history of railroading in the lower Connecticut Valley, especially in Chester. Until his retirement in 1998, Miller worked for 22 years as a foreman for the Valley Railroad, following many years as a volunteer there. He has been amassing a vast collection of Valley Railroad memorabilia for decades. He will bring his photographs and other items to exhibit at the Meeting House. Following the program, refreshments will be served.
