Mystery of the Trail to Rail Token

We all love a good mystery, right? Well, one appeared a few Saturday’s ago at the Take It or Leave It shop when a mysterious wooden token was presented. On one side was printed – New Castle Trail to the Rail and the other side – Good for 1 Cup of Coffee.  What could this have been from?

After a bit of digging and asking the the faithful members of the Facebook page – You Know Your from Chappaqua if You Remember… we have some answers to the mystery. It seems that the token was an attempt to get commuters to take a bus to the train station instead of driving sometime in the early 1990s. Alas, the effort lasted less than a year – so much for car/bus pooling!
