Yes, the problem I'm having is the lack of a track south of track #2. Are we past MP22 and just west of Grand Blvd? Thus, east of Westbury about 1.5 miles form Carlle Place. This would seem reasonable, yes? Thanks.

Carle Place and Westbury are exactly one mile apart: 20.4 to 21.4 to be exact. I think that this
picture is from just E of the east end of the Westbury low level platform. MACTRAXX
