Tarrytown-White Plains-Mamaroneck Line

Source:  NYD Bulletin, ERA Linder, Vol. 37 No. 3, Page 5.
Additional map and narrative to follow some time in the future.

   There is another map to this line and hopefully I will post it soon.  The map not posted shows the line going south via Mamaroneck Avenue.  I am not familiar with the streetcars of Westchester Coun ty, which is the county just north of the Bronx.  According to Linder, the line started as an electric streetcar in 1895 and one branch ended service on November 17, 1929 and another branch on March 11, 1927.  The Mamaroneck service started on June 30, 1898.  Unlike streetcars in Brooklyn and Manhattan, the track layout shows a lot of single track with bypasses.  The line was on its' way to extinction as early as the late 1920's.  I hope to post more in the future.  Tramway Null(0)
