048b 2628

Victim of an arsonist at the Erie yard, 2627 was towed to the Roseville west yard, shown here. Car was scrapped in August, 1939. (SE, 4-307,56XL) One record maintains that rear platform was panelled off and salt bins installed for combination passenger and/or salt operation, but this photo cannot confirm this. If true, this would be a one-only experiment.

In this rare photo, 2628 is turning into the Cedar Street subway, Newark, on the last day of operation of the 43 Jersey City line.
