Old Elevated Equipment Video with Brooklyn Trackless Trolley Operations in Williamsburg and Downtown Brooklyn
In this great video, (which I got off the web) I believe which was produced in connection with the Electric Railroader's Association fan trips, you will see old elevated equipment in Brooklyn, in color, with very good sound recording. You will also see for a few moments, Brooklyn trackless trolley operation at Washington Plaza just off the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn and also at Crown Heights and downtown Brooklyn What a find! The trolley bus system in Brooklyn lasted until July 27, 1960 and you will see the coaches in their silver and green delivery.
In the picture below, you will see elevated equipment on the Carnarsie Line, at the East 105th Street road crossing (the only one in the NYC Subway System) probably during a fan trip. You even get to see a UFO checking out the trip to the right of the car.
