Re: Original MaBSTOA Route Assignments Help

I was to ask if, with in the last two years of private operation of those bus routes, there was a change in route assignment by depot for the 1 and 2 from 100th Street to 146th Street. Several factors are at play in this question. One has to do with this picture, taken in 1960 on a 2 route that had one of the first wave of 'New Look' TDH-5301's ordered by Fifth Avenue Coach Lines:

I don't know about the last two years of FACL operation of the bus route network, but six months into MaBSTOA's founding in September 1962, there were no 'New Looks' at 100th Street (where the 1 and 2 had been stationed) but quite a few at 146th Street. And with the discontinuance of the 3 and 4 - Lexington Avenue lines of FACL's NYCO [Omnibus] Division in 1960 upon the one-way conversions of Lexington and Third Avenues, the 1 and 2's northern terminus was extended to 146th and Lenox near that said depot.
