New York & North Shore Traction Company Car southbound to Mineola. This is likely a Kuhlman built car. The Roslyn Clock Tower was a trolley stop and the tower still stands today.

This may be the same car northbound to Port Washington. It is about to climb a hill and cross Northern Boulevard (Rt 25A).

Have any Kuhlman cars of the early 1900s been saved?

MWB raised my curiosity about the Conestoga Traction Company. Here's a link to some more info about the Conestoga Traction Company including some color photos, and surviving Birney #236.

Among my favorite trolley cars are the Connecticut Company's Yale Bowl cars. The numbers of passengers that jammed these cars was spectacular and unprecedented.

I have often made posts on this forum begging MTH to market a Rail King Osgood Bradley open car. I realize that a can motor and PS 3 electronics would need to protrude above the floor over and between the car's trucks.  However, the protruding items can easily be hidden by loads of people just in the pictures of the Yale Bowl cars.

Look at the list of this Yale Bowl car jammed with passengers.

Maybe not.  Consider the use of magic carpet drives; possible to put most electronics in the ceiling?


There are many mysteries in this universe, big and small. Like, why do clowns make us laugh? Why do we love puppy dogs? And why, why do little blue midgets hit me with fish?
