Trains and Trolleys (1909) – Page

In the early 1900s, Wallington hosted both a train station and a trolley station. Many local Wayne County residents would utilize both means of transportation via Wallington to get to their final destination as it was an easy walk between the two stations.

Wallington was the first station south of Sodus Point on the Pennsylvania RR line, and the station between Sodus and Alton on the R.W. & O. Wallington is in the Town of Sodus, north of Sodus Centre, and very open country today.

The Rochester and Sodus Bay Railroad ran a series of trolleys between Rochester and Sodus Bay between 1900 and 1929. The Wallington Station was a major stop between Sodus and Sodus Point.
