New Rochelle-Subway Trolley Line

I am not that familar with the streetcar systems that ran just north of the Bronx in Westchester County in New York State.  One such line is the New Rochelle-Subway Line that ran from December 22, 1898 to December 17, 1950.  This line ran from NewRochelle to various terminals in the Bronx at various times.  It was extended to the Bronx around 1908 when it was extended to East 177th Street (West Farms Square).  At various times, the line was cut back to Westchester and later was extended to East 229th Street and later cut back to White Plains Road and 241st Street at the IRT subway station.  The Third Avenue Railroad Company and its offshots were owners for various periods of times.  These cars had the letter "A" shown on its' front as early as 1930.
