Wheels Of Time 90671 Motor Coach #600 w/AD The Yonkers Transit Transit Corp.

Originally called the Yonkers Railroad Company, it was a trolley system opened in 1886 in Yonkers, New York. The Yonkers Railroad was bought by The Third Avenue Railway Company in 1898. In 1922, the Third Avenue trolleys were moving some 70,000 people. In 1952, Mr. Samuel Schreiber and other investors founded the "new" Yonkers Railroad Company to take over and convert the Third Avenue Railway Co. Line in Yonkers into a profitable bus operation. This bus operation was later know as the Yonkers Transit Corporation. It ran until 1972 when it was consolidated with other operations in lower Westchester County. As a side note, Mr. Schreiber went on to work as a consulting engineer at Gilman & Company converting trolley systems into bus systems in many cities in United States, for the better or for the worst. The Yonkers roster many C45 buses but only eight C49-DT. The first three were former bus demonstrator coaches. Later, they purchase new five more C49-DT with the "new look front" in 1959.
