Vacant historical train deport recycled as part of community park.
The Sussex train depot was built in the late 1800s. Not wanting the historic train depot to sit and waste away, the Village of Sussex came up with an innovative idea: turn an old 16 mile rail-trail into a walking and biking trail with the train depot as the trailhead. Called the Bugline trail, this innovative idea brings the community together to enjoy getting active outdoors and engage with history. The American Trails documented the move here.
