KO? Busy enough to warrant a water plug, yard to the North. If anyone has the whole set of Emery maps, the water plug, station to the north and no siding to the south should limit what it is. An employee outing! Truly a different era - thanks for posting...

Old Ronkonkoma looking east at the block signal. Photo taken while standing in front (south) of the old Station. The only place where an A card for station work was regularly issued.
Wheelslip! Back to the Barn.
