Brooklyn Elevated Equipment Book
by James Clifford Greller
This book concentrates on early elevated equipment from the steam railroads to Coney Island, the New York and Brooklyn Bridge cable cars and the steam els, and how all that equipment became part of the formidable Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company. The book illustrates how transportation made possible the great transformation of a small Dutch farm land into a major metropolis. The difficult process of transforming hundreds of steam coaches into electric motor cars and later their conversion from open platform El cars to fleets of multiple unit controlled closed door units is also described.
