We’ve come a long way - from the streets of Brooklyn, to the waterfront of Kingston. We continue to grow, thanks to the support of our volunteers, our members, and our visitors.

TMNY’s Throwback Thursdays returns this week with this image of our Oslo tram car no. 3. Here it is running on street trackage at the corner of Plymouth and Washington Streets, in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn, New York, circa 1987. In this photo, no. 3 is running on former freight track and is being powered by an electric cord, allowing the car to run along about a length of a city block. Today, no. 3 is in our collection and makes occasional appearances along our mainline during the operating season in Kingston. Photo by Vincent Romero.

We had a great time operating our railcars for Sinterklaas celebrations this weekend! 
Our former Johnstown Traction Co. trolley car no. 358 and our former New York City Transit Authority R16 subway car no. 6398 were decked out for the holidays, greeting visitors and parade goers for rides along the Hudson. Our interurban “Doodlebug” no. 120 was out and about, providing traction power for no. 6398 as well. 
Please enjoy these shots taken by our hard-working volunteers who helped put this together! Photos by James McGinty, Justin Myrick, Omar Pagan, and Aahd Tahar.

1,000 FOLLOWERS! We’ve made it! A huge “Thank You” to all of our supporters who’ve been following us on Instagram! To celebrate, we’re bringing it back...way back. Back to TMNY Throwback Thursdays! 
Here is a rare photograph of our Brooklyn and Queens Transit PCC car no. 1000 at the Sands Street Station complex in Brooklyn, NY. 
The Sands Street station was a two-level complex run by the Brooklyn Manhattan Transit Corporation. It served trolleys and elevated trains. The station was located at what is now Cadman Plaza. Some trains and trolleys ran on tracks that crossed the famous Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan. The complex closed in 1944. 
Today, no. 1000 is undergoing restoration and resides in our collection. Photo: George Conrad Collection, date unknown.
