Check out the composite Aerial 2017 Bing Bird's Eye view I posted: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/mattituck/Mattituck-Bing-maps-2017.jpg

1. Anyone with other information concerning the previous LIRR siding served business' please advise.
2. Was the LIRR Northeastern Equipment ever a freight served location/business?
3. Anyone with photos of the ex-Potato House and ex-Coal pocket and Yard located at the SE corner of Wickham Ave and the LIRR?

New high level station would be built 1998-99 for the C-3 bilevel equipment (introduced 1999).
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

Thanks, Kevin as this points to an actual start date.

Unrelated, it feels pretty cool that you can't spell Mattituck without my name, Matt, and the letter K is the letter my last name starts with!
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.

I choked when viewing the original station and then see it reduced to a God-Awful, ugly shed! That was the quintessentially LIRR station! Sic Transit Gloria.

I've looked at this photo of the summer season Monday morning parlors + coaches train from Greenport to Jamaica many times over the past years. From what I can tell, the two cars ahead of ROCKY NECK BEACH are former PRR "FALLS" series six bedroom lounge cars. The locomotive is probably an Alco RS-3. I don't remember seeing an Alco C-420 locomotive on a Greenport train in that era (mid 60s - late 70s).

The Mattituck station location was more or less in downtown Mattituck, while the Cutchogue station was about a mile north of downtown Cutchogue. There were always more taxis waiting for customers at Mattituck than at Cutchogue. For passenger going to/from New Suffolk, I think Mattituck was the more popular station, despite the fact that Cutchogue was somewhat closer to New Suffolk.

Hey Steve, just a minor typo on the last pic in your OP:

Since it can't be August 2017 (8/08/2017), a quick check of your Mattituck page reveals it as May 8, 2017.

If you can still edit in the correction up there, then Liquidcamphor should just delete this post.

Thanks, I missed the typo! ;-) AND, the Station History has been revised: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirrphotos/LIRR%20STATION%20HISTORY.pdf

To reflect information/confirmation for example, below. Thus, the platforms had to be built/completed by 7/1999.

MATTITUCK: HI-LEVEL PLATFORMS AND SHELTER INSTALLED: 1999 TO ACCOMMODATE NEWLY-ARRIVED C3 BI-LEVEL CARS WHICH WERE PLACED IN SERVICE JULY, 1999. (Robert L. Myers data)


Thanks Guys for pointing me in the right direction. :-)
