Which trains on the Oyster Bay and/or Port Jefferson branches "will not operate" on Fridays from May 24th-August 30th?
Also what was the actual reason as to why MARC had to break the lease agreement with the LIRR last year-If I recall correctly wasn't the LIRR supposed to be getting two additional eight car sets from MARC?
Can anyone confirm?


I haven't heard anything down here in Baltimore about leasing some cars up there. Last year, NJ Transit transferred ownership to MARC a GP40 engine for payment on leasing a few cars to get over their overcrowding. Now, nothing.
"The last and final stop is BALTIMORE PENN STATION." I can has MARC V?
