1891: Rusling Station

Trenton Evening Times, October 14, 1891

This railroad station was established to enable area residents to access Broad Street Park prior to the trolley line being extended to Harrison Avenue.  People had to cross the meadows to reach the park and station.  The station in all probability utilized the line the NJ Transit River Line runs on today south of Rt. 195/Rt.29.  A search for a picture of the station has not proved successful to date.  The search will continue.
