All these parts are super important and should have been done earlier. Every part of this project makes a huge improvement when implemented for vehicles and trains and pedestrians alike. Progress is a good thing.

what towers are still open? nassau, bablyon, queens, lead?

crazy to think that theres that many, i think paoli and zoo on the harrisburg line are still open?

here in the twin cities there isn't even a shell of a tower left and there was a lot of them at one time.

Nassau,Babylon Queens,and Lead still live as does Divide in Hicksville.
Babylon controls the CTC to Montauk for now
Nassau controls a bunch of Mainline Crossovers and on the Oyster Bay Branch as well.

Don't forget Valley is still open. Valley and Babylon control all the interlockings on the Babylon, West Hempstead, and Far Rockaway Branches. Divide controls all the interlockings on the Ronkonkoma Branch, and as far as I know all the interlockings not just at Huntington but on the ENTIRE Port Jefferson Branch.
This station is Babylon, this is the train to Penn Station. Stopping at: Lindenhurst, Copiague, Amityville, Massapequa Park, Massapequa, Seaford, Wantagh, Bellmore, Merrick, Freeport, Baldwin, Rockville Centre, Lynbrook, Valley Stream, Jamaica, Kew Gardens, Forest Hills, Woodside, Penn Station.
