Re: Nighttime Shot of 3rd Ave El at 67th Street (1953)

Hello Murray 1575

Thanks much for that information.

HOWEVER, the labor issue covered completely in my posted message (#1456690) commentary on the topic. Larry Redbird R33 brought up the ROOF MARKER relocating in his reply (#1456758) to my posting, and I replied with more details on that (#1456763).

Possibly you didn't read the whole thread ! (Yes, understanding that it was quite long as it was !)

My Comments on the Composites and why they were retired in 1949-1950, and the Q's replacing them in 3rd Ave EL Express Service, related specifically to those issues only. As well as the trucks from Composites being placed under A&C Motor Car Q types. And solely those key points listed to keep things simple and focused.

The excess remaining Composites above those needed for the Q Type A&C Motor Car conversions, were stripped of motors and related comparable electrical parts for the salvage-use in the later maintenance & repairing of the ex-composite car trucks installed under the A&C Motor Car Q types. Those remaining Composite cars and their remaining un-needed underbody equipment, were also then all scrapped.

Re; your comment per the lowered modified roofs (during the early 1960's) as well as such requiring the (former MULTI Section cars) small electric ceiling fans, is interesting and well known, but had no bearing on the 1949-1950 transfer topic. They would be more specific on topics related to the Q's and Myrtle El service.....an other and separate topic

Regards ! - Joe F
