I'm in the process of modeling the Oyster Bay branch in O scale. I have the Mineola station area, the industrial area in Mineola known as "the hole", Locust Valley, and of course Oyster Bay. The track is down and ballasted, but I don't have much in the way of scenery yet. Attached is a copy of my track plan, and a picture of the OB yard. There is staging that is West of Mineola, and under the yard.

I have been slowly re-entering the hobby after the usual high school/college/early career hiatus :-P Besides dusting off and repairing all of my old equipment, I just completed my first custom paint job. This is an old Triang-Hornby US-market RDC painted to resemble LIRR 3121.

Andy (Steamfan77): Finally, a Long Island Rail Road layout in the right era, with the right branch depicted! Wish I lived closer.

Andy has been doing real nice work on both the track plan, concept, design, and construction. Can't wait to see the scenery and structures come to life! :-)

I snagged two Atlas HO Scale LIRR Alco C420s from Trainland in Lynbrook, NY, #s 226 and 229. Next will be a pair of the Athearn Genesis LIRR MP-15ac's......and I need three LIRR cabooses, two in the yellow with blue roof and an orange one with the LONG ISLAND in large blue letters.
Searching for the eagles of the XVII,XVIII & XIX Legions in Germania.

A couple videos of one of my GP-38's pulling two F&C P72's that I just put together. It's my first time actually painting a car.

2nd video has a paint scheme that I made up that's LIRR inspired, maybe something the P72's would have worn if they had continued farther into the C3 era.

Also here's some WIP pictures.

Quick question... what color where the seats in the P-72 cars? 1963-1966 era. Green? Brown?

Dark green vinyl 3/2 walkover seats. Same on the Pullman-Standard-built MU cars of the same era ('55-'56).
