http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/lirrwebsiteupdate.htm for December 2018

Question: Over the last 12 months: 13,379 views of the monthly updates with 13 replies total.

1.Is this monthly post of value to you folks?
2. Reason(s) for lack of replies?
3. Changes, perhaps?

Thanks everyone and Happy New Year.

Hi Steve,

The 13000+ views tell the story.
We are getting much needed archives of the LIRR. Preservation of History I call it.
Thank you so much for providing this resource.
It largely made possible the building of the Open Rails version of the Long Island Rail Road.
Soon returning to construction of the Oyster bay Branch. Ever Onward!

Regards,

You’re THE LIRR resource of our time! Just saw the mowers park pic, ...question. It’s labeled 691 602 and 603 but assume it’s taken from the top of 619? Also what’s this the gaping hole on top of the power cab?

No ideas about the gaping holes?
