A Fantrip On the LIRR Using MNRR Equipment

Post by newkirk » Sun Sep 22, 2019 1:24 pm

Photographed by me on June 10, 1989, can anyone offer some specifics on this fantrip ?
I could have posted this on the LIRR board, but I considered the use of MNRR equipment

NHRRH&TA sponsored trip New Haven Ct to Greenport LI and return,using 1 of the Danbury Thru train sets an 2 of the 4 NH painted FL-9's.
Routed over Hellgate Bridge, LI crew/officers boarded at Harold,push mode to GY.
Return trip had "Speed run" YA to Jamaica, may have run Lower Montauk to Fresh Pond up the ramp to Fremont then back to
New Haven.
The FL-9's were barefooted for this trip(no underrunning 3rd rail shoes)
