NJ chamber’s 80th ‘Walk to Washington’

 People head to assigned cars to board the annual New Jersey Chamber of Commerce’s 'Walk to Washington' train at the Trenton train station Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016, in Trenton, N.J. The Amtrak train gets its name from the idea that state lawmakers, lobbyists and business leaders walk up and down the train isles, networking, all the way from Newark to the nation's capital in a train chartered by the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce.
