The last photo showing the yard was taken before service ended on the 9th Ave el. Noteices can be seen in all of the car windows. Were all of the MUDC cars were sent to 2nd and 3rd Aves for service.

The yard was opened, in stages, beginning in 1906. It replaced a smaller yard at 145 St.

I agree! Thanks for posting them and putting up the link.
Never saw platform photos of the 155th st. station before, nor a RFW view of the tracks just south of the station -- and a notice "signed" by the Manhattan Railway.
Nice!
