Nice pics Bobby. The First pic is on Surf Avenue in Coney Island. The car was the last two man car built for the B&QT. They came before the 8000 series Peter Witts. Its in the pre board of transport colors , thinking late 1930s. And the Cyclone in the background. The trolley is gone more than 70 years but the Cyclone still runs in Coney Island. Believe it is the oldest wood coaster in the country.

 The New York & Long Island Traction Company NY&LIT had 4 principal lines. The original line ran from Brooklyn along Rockaway Boulevard, North Conduit Avenue, Atlantic Avenue and Merrick Road serving Rosedale, Valley Stream,  Lynbrook, Rockville Center, Oceanside, Baldwin and Freeport. Going north out of Freeport, a line served Roosevelt, Hempstead and Garden City. Departing Jamaica Avenue in Queens County, a line went along Hempstead Turnpike to the Belmont Race Track, Elmont, Franklin Square, West Hempstead and joined the northerly line out of Freeport in Hempstead.  The Jamaica Avenue line from Queens County also continued past the junction with Hempstead Turnpike east onto Jericho Turnpike serving Queens Village, Bellerose, Floral Park, New Hyde Park and Mineola. In Mineola, the line went south over the LIRR and connected with the northern line out of Freeport in Garden City. By 1926, the company was out of business.

Although this car belonged to Brooklyn Rapid Transit, it saw service on the New York & Long Island Traction lines.

More like tied for 9th oldest as of 2015. I don't know the status of a few of the older ones, but at least some are still running. The Cyclone was built in 1927. Leap the Dips in Altoona, PA was built in 1904. Heck, in the year 1927, Kennywood Park was building its 8th coaster, 3 of which are still in operation. Cyclone is a youngin.

The Cyclone is only wooden in the track area. The main structure is steel. That's why it's been around for quite a while. The first drop is a beauty and memorable. Love riding it.

nice photos Bobby. These were all taken near the time that most of these lines were replaced by busses or trolley busses. The city did not repaint many of the Peter witts into the Green colors. 

The second photo I am thinking might be a Flatbush Avenue car. Grand Army Plaza was an interesting place like some of the plazas in paris or Rome. 

The third photo could be a Grand Street car beginning its run into Williamsburg. In the photo you can see the twin trolley wires for the Flushing Avenue Trolley busses. which would have been pretty new at this time. 

The Canarsie shuttle ran down to the Canarsie pier when the original rapid transit line was cut back to this location. I remember riding that one. 

Next photo with the Ralph Rockaway car has just left Bridge Plaza and will soon enter Broadway under the Jaamaica El to proceed eastward

the last photo Tompkins avenue . These cars were replaced by Trolley busses shorthly afte rthis pjoto,

During my high school years I was a member at the Western Railway Museum (Bay Area Electric Railway Museum) at Rio Vista Junction.  We had a Petaluma and Santa Rosa interurban that was restored by a pair of brothers, the Holmes brothers.  It was a very nice piece of equipment.  Same tan with red trim as the one pictured above.

Can anyone identify this car an its location?

Thanks to Rusty, this car is identified as Cincinnati & Lake Erie Car 119e931db5b421d6311002c12a82f94c98c

Don't know the ID of the car at the moment, but, the writing at the bottom of the photo says, Ohio Railway Museum, Worthington, Ohio. I did a search of images and found it's Cincinnati & Lake Erie car 119.

I did the same while Rusty was doing his lookup.  Here's the link to the roster: http://www.columbusrailroads.c...s/orm/orm-roster.pdf

It's from 1915 and was acquired in 1953. In addition to Cincinnati and Lake Erie, the car ran on the Cedar Rapids and Iowa ? City (can't read my own handwriting :-) Railway.

P.S. Is that a phone box on the pole in the background?  Looks like the old box style.
