Light Rail Trip, Bordentown to Trenton and Back
September 12, 2020 @ 9:15 am
Join Pamela V’Combe for a tour by light rail into the 19th century. Meet at the Bordentown River Line light rail station at 9:15 a.m. (Turn left into parking lot at 100 W. Park Street at Prince Street, above the boat landing.) Purchase your tickets and receive a brief introduction before boarding the train for Trenton. The train follows the D&R Canal path from Crosswicks Creek to Trenton. See the abandoned canal, Watson’s Creek, and the Abbott Marshlands. In the City of Trenton where Route 129 is on the former route of the canal, remains of the industrial and commercial buildings can be compared with earlier photos. Participants will get an overview of places that are difficult to see any other way, but on the train. In Trenton, participants may opt for a guided walk (¾-mile round trip) to the State Street Bridge over the former canal (now the Trenton Freeway). Tickets are $1.60 ($.75 for seniors); the current one-way-only provision may apply so be prepared to pay double the amounts. Please bring exact change. Pre-registration is strongly advised.
