Brooklyn Rapid Transit 1792

The famous baseball team got its name from a disparaging remark made in a Manhattan newspaper that Brooklynites were just a “bunch of Trolley Dodgers.” Cars such as 1792 were working the streets of Brooklyn at this time. It later was converted to a work car and is currently in the process of interior restoration.
