Hi-level build dates for the LIRR main line

Postby nyandw » Sun May 14, 2017 9:54 pm

Anyone have the actual build/completion/in service dates for the station upgrades east of Riverhead? I'm using this to update the station history list:

Thanks for any help, Folks.

the Station History has been revised: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirrphotos/LIRR%20STATION%20HISTORY.pdf

to reflect the following: 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)

Anyone with specific build/completion dates?

I do not have exact dates, but all were completed by roughly March 1st, 1999.

That would explain an overlap period with the P72/75s operating high level for several months. The lower Montauk stations in Queens (and some others east) were closed even earlier, 3/16/98.
