LIRR C-94

Postby Teutobergerwald » Thu Jun 14, 2018 10:28 pm

There's a picture of LIRR caboose C-94 in the weeds in Corona Yard in the '70s along with LIRR passenger equipment that was stored or being scrapped, on the trainsarefun.com website. I could swear I saw the C-94 at the Hicksville, Garden City and PW team yards and on passing LIRR freights through Hicksville occasionally back in the '80s. Am I mistaken? Did the LIRR have other cabooses numbered in the -90s that I might have seen rather than the C-94 ???

Perhaps C-94 was stopping over as part of a freight turn, as Corona also served as freight sidings/team tracks for Willets Point up until the end of all operations in corona yard and/or PW line freight

Edit: Disregard, the picture you're talking about shows it on the scrapline. Trainsarefun says that the IC Hacks were a class of several.
