The Camden - Trenton Light Rail project, officially known as the Southern New Jersey Light Rail Transit System (SNJLRTS), will return passenger rail service to the eastern shore of the Delaware River in Mercer, Burlington and Camden Counties. This rail line, part of the original Camden and Amboy Rail Road saw the John Bull engine run its tracks. Construction on the line began in 1831 and was completed in 1834.
The "Nelly Bly", an express train that ran from New York City to Atlantic City passed here also. The "Nelly Bly" is famous for the wrecked that occurred three miles south of Trenton on the bank of the Delaware and Raritan Canal in 1901.
These pages will develop as the line is constructed.
