A train of Brooklyn Union elevated cars circa 1907 belonging to the New York Transit Museum collection. These venerable cars, which had been rebuilt into "Q-Type" cars in the 1930s, were rebuilt back to their original appearance by employees of the Coney Island Overhaul Shop. They operated several trips for charity in the summer of 2004, seen here heading north of 215th Street on the IRT West Side line. Photo by David Pirmann.
