which is generously offering everyone a free ride.  After a brief museum tour of vintage transit vehicles, we will board a restored trolley for a scenic trip and  disembark for a walk along the proposed trail to Farm River where plans for a bridge linking East Haven to Branford will be discussed.  On the return trip to the Trolley Museum, we will pass the remains of a former stone crushing plant, and learn its history.  This tour is NOT suitable for pets.  Meet at 10AM at the Shoreline Trolley Museum, 17 River St rest East Haven.
