This post is for the Long Islanders and other New Yorkers who lurk here. It features the New York & North Shore Traction Company. This company ran interurban type cars along Northern Boulevard from Flushing with branches to Whitestone, Port Washington, Mineola and Hicksville, circa 1902 to 1920.
The cars were built by Stephenson and Kuhlman. I am in the process of modifying an MTH Brill to mimic these cars. What I know about the New York & North Shore Traction Company is principally from from Vincent F. Seyfried's book (below). Mr. Seyfried was my high school English teacher. If anyone has more information about the New York & North Shore, please reply to this post.
