Third Avenue Railway
Birney #1651 is the lone car on the short Dyre Avenue line that operated between the Bronx/Mount Vernon line and Boston Road.  This short segment of single track was the remnant of the Fifth Avenue-Mount Vernon line of the Mount Vernon division that was abandoned on October 29, 1930. This curiosity was finally abandoned on June 28, 1938.
