The train bridge across the Trent River.
This picture of the bridge looks a little dark and dreary, but there's an awesome rainbow in it. I'll bet you didn't know that rainbows end right here in Trenton, Ontario, just on the east bank of the Trent River. That's where you'll find the pot of gold, although by the time you get there, the locals will have scooped it up and will already be on their way to the beer store.
Trenton is pretty much evenly divided by the river, and there are two car bridges across it and one train bridge. The Via trains heading east are usually coming from Toronto and ending up in Montreal, and the ones going west are doing the exact opposite. For most people on the train, Trenton will just be another town along the way, somewhere in the middle.
For me though, it's my home, and as a real estate agent in this area, I'm happy to promote this great town to just about anyone who will listen. I'll be doing a lot of that over the next 31 days, as I have accepted the blogging challenge to write one post per day about the area that I serve.
As you can see, Trenton, (and the Quinte area in general) is well situated between Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. As such, a lot of the local industry is centred on trucking, transportation and storage. It's much cheaper for large companies to store products in Trenton and ship them to the larger centres than it is to store them in the metropolitan areas.
We are also the proud home to Canada's largest military base, C.F.B. Trenton, but that will be the subject of another blog post. I must pace myself.
Anyhow, if you're looking for a good town to store things in that's conveniently located in the middle of Canada's economic engine, give me a call, I may have some warehouse space for you, real cheap. Just follow the rainbow and you'll find us here.
