2693 shares Jackson Avenue route with a 20s vintage bus and auto, all rolling by the Gay Nineties corner building. (SE, 4-307, 56XL)

Compressor throbbing, air exhausting, 2693 seems like a living, breathing creature with a life of its own.



Framed by a bus windshield, 2693 approaches Jackson line special work. Trolley track switches angered some motorists. Potholes, gaps, unevenly paved surfaces affected steering and, claimed some, damaged tires and alignment.

Passengers prepare for last stop as 2694 enters the Hudson Place terminal at Hoboken, having made the unforgettable run down the steep grade of the Hoboken trestle.
