See Ridership of the MTA Over the Years

Recommended Posts

Wow, there it is.

 

In 1946 the united states started not respecting its rail system, all types of rail based systems. Look what happened next. Gee, i guess winning a war in 2 hemispheres across 2 different oceans produced veterans tired of seeing, using, and attempting to destroy trains in war, so they pulled a "bridge over the river kwai" (ironically a rail bridge) political maneuver. It's the only explanation i could come up with that doesnt involve corruption... :confused: :(

 

Very neat find thank you for sharing! :eek::tup:

In 1946 the ridership of the MTA had reached an all time high. TSQ had reached over 102,000,000 riders.

Same for PRR, and every other road. Post war traffic was why service was so frequent, as someone else noted "the big red subway". PRR having Tuscan red rolling stock. B)
