Looks like three big projects scheduled for this weekend. Signals at harold interlocking, PTC work on Port Washington line and double track related work at Wyandanch. Also station modernization projects underway as well as improvement work in multiple areas including Little Neck which is underway now. Not to mention other projects such as on Montauk line and preliminary third track work till May. So much going on including Amtrak work for tracks LIRR uses at Penn Station. Track 15 back in service and a turnout was replaced.

You mentioned signals at Harold Interlocking. Are some/all of the new color-light signals going to be "cut-in" this week?

Everyone: There is again a bus program for the Ronkonkoma Branch between Hicksville and
Ronkonkoma this weekend for more second track construction work.

The Port Jefferson Branch has reduced service of hourly trains to Huntington and every two hours
between Huntington and Port Jefferson. Port Washington trains will operate hourly.

The 3/24-25 weekend will be a busy one for the LIRR especially now after LI is recovering from
the Wednesday 3/21 snowstorm in which some areas got more then a foot of snow. This time of
year with the strong sun angle and lengthening days snow does not tend to stay around long.
Even with the solid foot or more of snow that I got in my area I am already seeing snowmelt...

Ronkonkoma Branch work includes removing Central Islip 1's signal gantry that was replaced with dwarf signals, and at Wyandanch they are prepping further for the elevator/pedestrian bridge hybrid. They will also be doing more ballast grading, installation of third rail further East to Ronkonkoma, and switch testing.
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.
