   The LIRR PR piece is impressive in every way to this Ohioan.  You New Yorkers may pay higher taxes than we flatlanders do, but look at what you get!  The LIRR replaced more bridges in these photographs than the Ohio DOT.  At least, it looks like it.  Modern up-to-date stations, new and better equipment...what's not to like?

   Thanks for posting this and thereby giving railfans hope for the future.

That is impressive and as an ex-Long Islander, the LIRR has sure come a long way from the days of "Dashing Dan."

I dunno, Valley Stream Station looks kind of clinical... nice see through garbage can though!  ... and it's the only one with any people in it... where are all the people? Mass Transit... no mass.

Dave, Can you provide what I'm seeing in the Nassau Switch picture. Is that a movable frog on a high speed switch?
