An appeals court aproved Princeton's "Dinky" Train station to be moved. (Published Wednesday, March 19, 2014)

A New Jersey appeals court says a train station can be moved to make room for a new arts center at Princeton University.

The station on the Princeton campus serves a two-car train known as the Dinky that makes stops only there and at the larger Princeton Junction station.

The university and New Jersey Transit have a plan to shorten the track by 460 feet to allow the school to build a $320 million arts center.

A group known as Save The Dinky says a 1984 contract between the university and New Jersey Transit does not authorize the move. A lower court judge ruled against the group last year and an appeals court did the same on Tuesday.

SaveTheDinky lawyer Virginia Kerr says the group is considering whether to appeal.
