World's first street railway?
Highly unlikely. Richard Trevithick's steam locomotive operated on a street railway in Pennydarren, Wales back in 1804. Animal-powered street railways were common back then.
- Maybe not the world's first, but MTA claims it was the nation's first. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 18:01, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
When did it cease operation?
- Unfortunately I don't know when the company disappeared; I added a bit more recent history though. --SPUI (talk) 16:31, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)
can someone add the box other rail companies have to this article? 18.104.22.168 03:51, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
- The dates of operation are actually more complicated, with the NY&H continuing to operate the Fourth Avenue Line streetcar for a while. I'll think about it and clarify the infobox. --NE2 13:25, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Should this article be merged with Harlem Valley Railroad? Harlem Valley Railroad and NY&Harlem RR are basically the same RR. The former became the latter. Just askin'. LiPollis (talk) 12:51, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
- You can read about bustitution here on wikipedia as well as on wiktionary:bustitution. It is a portmanteau, or made up word that is a combination of two others. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:59, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
- The original poster of this section is right to question it, since it is an apparent neologism versus a legitimate term.
