Everyone:

What surprised me about the 2018 Holiday Express runs was the comparable lack of interest this
year in comparison to both of the 2017 runs and the inaugural 2016 run west from Ronkonkoma.
There was just the two posts above mine about the Saturday train - and I found just four videos
(these two were recorded at Pinelawn and Seaford respectively) of the Holiday Express trains:

Steve - From the videos the same Holiday Express drumhead sign looks to have been used.

I was at Ronkonkoma on Saturday. Didn’t see anybody taking photos. But the the train wasn’t platformed right. Too close to west end of the platform. No good views. With the second track install they also removed the signal tower at Smithtown Ave. Caught them at Wyandanch. Not bad shot. The protect set was blocked by the eastbound MU set to Ronkonkoma. The Dual Modes were not decorated above the drumhead like 2017.
