Second Avenue Railway
Car # 52, a convertible in closed configuration, is actually a car owned and in operation on the SECOND AVENUE RAILROAD Company who ran two major lines; Second Avenue and First Avenue in Manhatttan. The car shown was originally owned by the METROPOLITAN STREET RAILWAY and passed over to the Second Avenue when the Metropolitan fell apart in 1908 and was virtually dismembered. The car was rebuilt to convertible format along with many other similar cars and this type was the mainstay of the Second Avenue's operation.
