The train station (circa 1903) restoration is part of the downtown revitalization program. A future possible use for the building is as a restaurant.

The Scope of the Work Included:

  • 30 transom windows to replace totally vandalized original windows
  • Over 1000 custom hand-spun 4" rondelles with custom cast lead filler triangles
  • Architect: Ford, Farewell, Mills, & Gatsch -- Princeton, NJ

The quaint and attractive train station.

This transom required us to extend our 8' table! It is now ready for soldering. All surfaces of lead came and castings were flooded with solder -- as per the original.
