The Circus is in Town
Title:  The Circus is in Town
Description:  NS H81, the local Pascack Valley crew from Croxton shoves the Ringling Brothers Circus Train onto the new Meadowlands Rail Line. Sadly this brings an end the "March of the Elephants" from the old "Long Siding" on the Pascack Valley Line to the Meadowland Arena along Paterson Plank Road. The new NJT Sport Line allows the animals to be safely and conveniently unloaded right across the highway from their destination with no affect on roadway traffic.
