Perhaps, could it be some form of a three-legged transfer with a behind the scenes agreement with Far Rockaway?

I found a book from 1932 about bus operations, very interesting read and surprising how good condition it is minus the discoloring. But, it appears many franchises and private companies at that time had many unusual ways of business and some that would definitely not be accepted today. I say this because there’s a small chapter from the Fifth Ave Company in Manhattan and the way they thought to develop timetables stated though it was very unusual for common practice they feel it was best for their operation. Then, on the other hand some interesting practices and is beyond me why it couldn’t work today!

Also, you could analyze the serial numbers if you really had the time on your hands :).

Are there any local Rockaway Historians that any of you know of, if one exists?
