Besides the historic trolley and subway cars listed in the roster to the right, the Trolley Museum of New York also has collections of photographs, postcards, books and other artifacts. The highlights of these collections are often featured exhibits in our Visitors Center.
A partial list of items currently on display: caps and badges, tokens, pre WWII toy trolleys, a subway turnstyle, subway and trolley operating handles, electrical insulators and signal lanterns.
The volunteers are still in the process of cataloging the museum's collection of photographs and other artifacts. However, what has been cataloged so far is summarized below. These lists are designed to be web searchable so people researching subjects related to our collections will find them easily.
There are a number of photographs in the museum collection that are unlabeled. This page is a way for all you rail and traction experts out there to help us identify them!
If you know anything about these pictures or their location, please let us know so we can update the museum records. Thanks!
These were mysteries, but thanks to our diligent readers, they have been identified:
Here are five of our president emeritus Evan Jennings's favorite photos in the TMNY collection. Evan has been heading the archives at TMNY for over fifteen years and has personally cataloged thousands of items. His favorate photos are usually ones that show the trolley as part of the everyday life of those who depended on it for daily transportation or otherwise capture a special moment.
