Foxys 2013 LIRR photos

Recommended Posts

I start the year off in Oyster Bay, I brought my camera with when I was on my errands in Oyster Bay and happened to be there in time to catch the Oyster Bay branch train coming in.

Hope you like, more to come as the year unfolds. If anyone has a particular station they wish to see photographed on the LIRR, let me know and if its not something insanely far out in Suffolk I will look into getting photos from that station for you.

Nice photos!

 

I wish someone'd go out to Montauk and make pictures there but it doesn't seem to be a popular place (probably because of the few trains going there).

It is-the LIRR equipment has to fit through the Amtrak East River Tunnels. At 14 feet 8 inches, I'm pretty sure it is the tightest clearance standard for heavy rail passenger equipment in North America, and because its so busy, lots of equipment around the country is designed to fit.

 

Most commuter rail systems in the US use double decker equipment, either exclusively or mixed with single levels. SLE, MNR, WES, and SEPTA are probably the only exceptions I can think of.

Many of them do cross state lines (MARC, Metra, NICTD, NJT, MBTA) but they are all centered on a metropolitan area. Unlike the Metropolitan Line of LU, it is absolutely forbidden to run commuter rail and subway on the same tracks in the US-when they parallel separate and usually fenced-off tracks need to be built.

Thanks! LU - London Underground?

 

You mean London uses the same tracks for both trains (subway and commuter)?

As i see on this pic here we have two types of rails, may be thats what you meant.

 

And as i understand in the USA there is just two parallel lines of subway and commuter, yes? Or am i wrong and confusing?

Just looked for few pics of rails in New York here, on this forum, so i see that usually NY lines uses 3 rails, but im not guess that 3rd is subway (or conversely, commuter), cuz where is backward rail?
