Saturday June 1st at 10 am

Are you interested in history or trolley trains?  A pleasant walk to a river?  Osprey sightings perhaps? If so, come celebrate the 7th year of partnership between the Branford and East Haven Shoreline Greenway Trail teams and the Shore Line Trolley Museum! We will gather at 10:00 at the Shore Line Trolley Museum, 17 River Street in East Haven, which houses nearly 100 vintage transit vehicles. A Museum volunteer will take us for a  ride along the museum’s scenic track through the Farm River estuary. Participants will disembark at a platform to walk to the old dike at the Farm River, visit the remains of an old crushing plant, and talk about its history.  At 11:30 a museum volunteer will take us on a tour of the old trolleys, including the PATH train car that survived 9/11 at the World Trade Center.
