History – Light Rail 2014
April 12, 2014 @ 12:00 am
April 12 (Saturday). Light rail trip. Join Barbara Ross for a tour by light rail into the 19th century. Meet at the Bordentown RiverLINE light rail station at 9:15 am (turn left into parking lot at 100 W. Park Street at Prince Street, above the boat landing), purchase tickets, and receive a brief introduction before boarding the train for Trenton. The train follows the path of the D&R Canal from Crosswicks Creek to Trenton. See the abandoned canal, Watson’s Creek and the Abbott Marshlands. In the City of Trenton, where Rt. 129 is on the former route of the canal, remains of the industrial and commercial buildings can compared with earlier photos. Participants will get an overview of places that are difficult to see any other way, but anyone expecting a leisurely guided tour will be disappointed. Participants may opt for a brief post-trip stop at Bordentown Beach for a better view of Crosswicks Creek and the canal’s Lock One. Two-hour tickets are $1.50 ($.70 for seniors). Please bring exact change. Pre-registration is strongly advised; call 609-924-2683 after March 31st. This D&R Canal Watch program is co-sponsored by the Friends for the Abbott Marshlands, Bordentown City Environmental Commission, and D&R Greenway Land Trust.
