Which LIRR Stations require you to change to certain cars?

Recommended Posts

Yuki, if you're asking what I think you're asking:

 

Jamaica is a major transfer station on the L.I.R.R..

 

Huntington, Ronkonkama and Babylon see a change to diesels for the runs to Port Jefferson, Greenport and Montauk.

 

Pinelawn is a short length L.I.R.R. station and not all cars open their doors.

 

I believe Woodside and Hicksville also are transfer stations on the L.I.R.R..

You are correct....Woodside you can transfer for the (7)<7> and train to Port Washington or any Port Washington Branch stations!

 

Hicksville you can also transfer for the train to Port Jefferson!

I mean like (3) at 145th St, and some stations in Staten Island Railway. Certain train stations only accept limited train car because of short station.

Hollis Station on the Hempstead Branch

Glen Street Station Oyster Bay Branch

Kew Gardens Station,Forest Hills Station can platform 4 car MU trains and Oyster Bay Branch stations with the exception of Glen Street Station,can hold 4 car length C3 Bi-Level diesel trains

any of the stations on the Montauk Branch,passed Babylon and Bayshore Stations which can platform 12 cars,are 4 to 6 cars long

I believe stations passed Ronkonkoma Station are short,not too sure

Port Jefferson stations passed Huntington Station are short as well

usually on Montauk,Oyster Bay and Port Jefferson trains one has to walk up to the front cars to get off at the above mentioned stations if sitting on the last few cars

hope this helps

Yes Woodside Station LIRR is a last transfer point for Port Washington Branch trains and a transfer to the 61 Street-Woodside Station(7)<7> IRT subway,not a free transfer i believe,can anyone confirm this?

Hicksville is a terminal station for some MU trains with a connection to a Port Jefferson diesel train

other times at Huntington Station

Murray Hill on the Port Washington Branch is only 4 cars long, they make announcements before stopping there in order to remind people to walk forward

I'm pretty sure that Jamaica can only platform 10 cars, because I've had to go to Pinelawn (which only platforms the last two cars) and the last half of the last car on 12 car trains would never make it in.

Inwood on the Far Rock branch only platforms 4 cars. its 6 car marker NY bound is beyond the platform. only the southernmost cars platform in both directions due to a grade crossing at Dougherty Blvd

That's where I got the data for the previous post from. I just compiled it.

 

Cool, I was just informing Yuki about that site.

Port Jefferson stations passed Huntington Station are short as well

 

All Port Jeff stations are 12 cars except:

 

•Cold Spring Harbor and Greenlawn's south platforms are 8 cars and Greenlawns is unused

•Port Jeff is 10 cars

 

usually, despite adequate platform length, 4-6car trains are run (except for DM trains, which run 8-10 cars), requiring passengers changing at Jamaica, Hicksville, or Huntington to walk forward because of this. Personally, this is my biggest pet peeve of riding the Lirr
