More trolleys from Greenpoint BrooklynManhattan Ave Trolley a

Thinking this a Graham Ave. car. This route ran down to  Broadway and then headed for downtown Brooklyn. Some of these  cars went over the Brooklyn Bridge to Park Row in Manhattan. The route  was one of several B&QT lines that connected three borough's , ie Queens , Brooklyn and Manhattan. These cars started their run in Long Island City crossing the double Bascule bridge at Newtown Creek. . We are at Meserole Avenue in this photo. Lot of prewar cars in the photo so maybe early 1940s

Interesting note about these Pullman PCCs:  Some of 'em fetched up in Philadelphia via Toronto after the 1975 Woodland Carbarn fire wiped out about half of the SEPTA PCC fleet.  Thirty years and three transit companies after they were built,  they STILL had the holes in the seat backs for "Jim Crow" signs...  

This particular car did not wind up in Philly, but lived out its days as Toronto Transportation Commission 4717, unless I'm mistaken.

Actually, also Fort Smith.       https://www.fstm.org/

Speedrail wreck of 9-2-50 in Milwaukee. An NMRA fan trip on Labor Day of 1950 lead to 10 deaths and many injuries.  The resulting claims and loss of ridership put the company in a downward spiral. All service ended on June 30, 1951.

Lightweight Articulateds 39 & 40, were running behind schedule towards Milwaukee. Heavyweights 1192-1193 were running out of Milwaukee. Around 9:45 a.m. the trains collided just south of National Ave. in Greenfield, approximately where the on ramp for I-894 from National Ave. is today. The impact resulted in the lead Hheavyweight 1192 telescoping into leading Car 39 and splitting it apart for 2/3rds of its length.

Regarding the Speedrail NMRA Special wreck, as can be seen in the 2nd photo, none of the cars left the track in the accident. So it appears that Speedrail moved 39 & 40 off of the track to clear the line.

Bobby   nice shots of the B&QT peter Witts. Brooklyn;s fleet was quite large, about 525 cars , all but 25 were double enders. In Later years may were operated as single enders because more loops were added to the system. Only Philadelphia had a larger fleet of these cars. 

Regarding the photo of the car under the el structure, I am thinking its the myrtle avenue El . The car number is 8439. Its in Board of transport colors but it looks like the Boards medallion emblem is not yet on  the car.

LIRR Steamer,

Did the Myrtle Avenue street car go as far into Brooklyn as Jay Street where the El terminated?

Bobby

There was a Myrtle Avenue car that originated in Ridgewood and followed Myrtle Ave downtown and continued past to Redhook . The Crosstown Car entered Myrtle Avenue at Vanderbilt avenue but it may have been rerouted after the Myrtle avenue route from Ridgewood was discontinued. There was also a car that ran to Greenpoint that turned off Myrtle Avenue at Kent Avenue. These thee lines ran into the area of Bridge and jay street. They all went through a downtown area near what was Sand Street terminal but became known as Civic Center . The Graham avenue, Vanderbilt avenue and Flushing Avenue routes went to Civic center as well via Flushing Ave however, 

Greenpoint line closed 1945, The Ridgewood line in 1949 and the Crosstown line closed in 1951. The Greenpoint car was not replaced by a bus but the other two routes were. The Myrtle avenue El ran to Bridge and jay Street for another 18 years to 1969.

The open car with the Myrtle avenue sign is probably near the end of the route in Ridgewood it would seem. 

The photo with the reference to the 3 cents lie is actually a B&QT car on the Williamsburg Bridge, heading to the B&QT;s underground trolley terminal at Delancey and Essex Streets in Manhattan.
