World's first street railway?[edit]

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. (talk) 10:00, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

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?[edit]

It would be interesting to know what happend to NY&HRR, when did it cease to exists? According to this link, the company existed as late as 1974. [1]. RustyCale 13:52, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

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? 03:51, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Added {{Infobox rail}}. Slambo (Speak) 11:42, 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)
I didn't think I had the dates entirely correct, thanks for the update. Slambo (Speak) 14:10, 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)


is that even a word? (talk) 18:25, 17 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. (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. (talk) 09:55, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
