University Avenue Trolley, the Bronx, 1934-1947 Track Diagram

Source:   Linder, Bernard in "University Avenue Line", The Bulletin, New York Division, Electric Railroaders' Association, Vol. 40, No. 5, May, 1997, pp 2-4.

According to Mr. Linder, the University Avenue Line in the Bronx ran from May 31, 1906 to October 26, 1947.  The official number of the line was # 7 but thus never appeared on the cars.  When the 1200 series cars were placed in service, the cars carried a large metal plate on the dashboard with the letter "U" and "University Avenue" written underneath.  The line was originally a New York City Interborough Railway Company.
