Mississippi Avenue has just been repaved as 2670 brakes for first inbound Orange line stop at Harrison Avenue, before swinging out to Main Street.

Interior view of 2670 rear platform showing bare-bones controls, controller, air brake, and emergency brake, used when the car was assigned to the 27 Mount Prospect line for backing into the Olcott Terrace wye in Newark. Erie yard, 1941.


A classic study of a compromise roof car in an idyllic setting: 2670 on the layover spur at the Erie yard. The track on which the car rests was once Swamp Road line right of way.
