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 cleared 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 at 10AM at the Shoreline Trolley Museum, 17 River St, East Haven.
