WOODBINE — Woodbine as tourist attraction?

That's what Mayor William Pikolycky envisions for this tiny Pinelands borough with a proposed extension of the Cape May Seashore Lines railroad excursion.

The borough has applied for a $550,000 tourism grant from the state Department of Community Affairs to build a railroad station off Route 550. The borough also is asking the state Department of Transportation for $1.1 million for repairs to about a quarter-mile of track.

Tony Macrie, the president and general manager of Cape May Seashore Lines, said Woodbine would be an extended stop on a current excursion between Richland In Buena Vista Township and Tuckahoe in Upper Township.

The article also mentions adding another car for bicycles, and current plans have the station being built outside of town next to Woodbine Airport and Route 550.
