This a remarkable find! Some time back, TRAINS did a very thorough article about detail of N Y C LCL Operations in New York Metro.  
In the report, dates much later than that shown in this source you located. Short of it? LCL Operations quite complex, and clearly a  
'high costs' line of business.
 
Much later, the NYC involvement in its Flexi-Van program. In many ways, it a more effective method in handling LCL and Forwarder  
shipments. So that; NYC kept trying to keep the services available...
