2690 sets the pace for a trailing sedan. Senior author, who lived at Tory Corners in the early 1940s could hear the owl cars on the Orange line in the wee hours as far south as the stretch from West Orange center to Park Avenue to Tory Corners, about one and a half miles. Other night sound was of DL&W steam locomotives passing through Orange.

2690 explores the Orange line at Tory Corners on first day after release from the Roseville rehab shop, July, 1944.


2691 owns the road in this surreal scene with no traffic, no pedestrians in sight. The car is headed for the el, on the Summit Avenue bridge over the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad tracks. (SE, 4-307, 56XL).
