OTOL Long Island RailFest 2010:
Homepage

Friday, August 20 - Saturday, August 21

Created 1/22/10; Updated 3/3/11

The OTOL Long Island RailFest 2010 was mostly MTA Long Island Railroad, but it also included a little MTA NYCT subway riding. It took place on a Friday afternoon & evening and all day Saturday. The reasons for doing this Fest at this time of year were to take advantage of later daylight, and to ride the West Hempstead Branch before weekend service was eliminated.

Friday
On Friday we will first rode the M train over its new routing between Midtown Manhattan and Brooklyn, going over the Williamsburg Bridge and back. Later, we took the Long Island RR from Long Island City to Babylon via Hunterspoint Avenue and the Central Branch, and then returned to Manhattan on a Babylon Branch train.

Saturday
Our travels featured the West Hempstead Branch, Oyster Bay Branch, and Long Beach Branch.
