Are there any LIRR trains that don't operate east of Jamaica?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if any trains that are listed in the City Terminal Zone schedule are shuttles that only go to/from Jamaica.

Just curious - who are the intended customers of these shuttles? And how much use do they get?

 

And why do some trains end at Jamaica (from the west)?

Most trains from diesel territory end at Jamaica, with the exception of a select few during rush hours that run to and from Penn using 2 DMs on each end of the train.

Sunny do these show up on the City Terminal Zone schedule?

 

 

Yes they show up on the CTZ schedule. For the sake of convenience I just pulled the list above from the ridership book.

 

Their intended customer base is for those transferring at Jamaica.

Those Cityzone trains are layups into Jamaica yard tracks, and make connections with other trains.

The trains that terminate at Jamaica usually come from non electrified territory and they are scheduled with electrified trains going to Penn Station or Flatbush Avenue. (I'm older than 40 so I can use the terminal's old name.)

There is one case of electrics terminating at Jamaica from the east—late night Brooklyn trains to/from Hempstead, Far Rockaway, Long Beach, and Huntiington that were cut back in September 2010.
