Yes, last customer was Islip Coal last coal hoppers, perhaps late 1950's as conversion to fuel oil was rapid.
LIRR Car Load Reports, last I have is 1977. Anyone with earlier?
No evidence of any freight between Islip station and Oakdale team Yes

They supplied heavy cast-iron plumbing material before PVC existed, hence the siding.
The switch to the north to NY Tel. is no longer there but the building is still there as a telecom company. The switch led into a large area now occupied by a major rigging company, which has spread to both sides of the track into what was Case Supply.

(Mileages from LI City) showing the various sidings and freight spurs in the mid 1960s.
This map omitted two passenger stations: Great River (45.2) and Blue Point (52.6)
Glad to assist with this added information...MACTRAXX

In the same location directly north of M1 there is this old building that looks perfectly to be a coal yard office.
