Anyone with an ETT Jan 1st, 1952 forward, that can ID these train times in Port Jefferson on Feb 9, 1952? Thank you.

Info solved: LIRR ETT No. 19, Sep 17, 1950 indicates as follows:
Train 623, leaves Port Jeff 8:00 AM daily
Train 648, leaves NY 4:31 PM daily, except Sunday Research: John Fusto

Train 623 was the westbound to NY handed back to him, returning on a later afternoon train eastbound Train 648 and then delivered through the postal system to his address in PA. Note: You can see the font for the train numbers differ between the two cancellations AND Train 648 is upside down! Research: Dave Keller Note: Jan 1st, 1952 post card rate (unsealed 1st Class) was 2¢. Research: Steve Lynch

The hand stamped cancellations are very nice as it was a "hand back" over the counter to the customer
