This shelter was supposed to be demolished as part of the 1995 station renovation project. I was the Port Jefferson Branch Line Manager at the time. At a meeting with Capital Programs, I protested the shelter demolition, contending that the shelter should be restored and that it would then enhance the beauty of the entire project. Project Manager, Boris Gutman, agreed with me and had the shelter completely restored, putting on a new slate roof, re-staining the wood columns and repairing the stone walls. Well done Boris! 

Well, don't let any good dead go unpunished.  About a decade later, some dummy in the Engineering Department decided that the beautiful, natural-wood columns should be painted with white paint.  See the last three photographs.  What a shame!  Then, to add insult to injury, the paint has been allowed to peel and now the shelter looks horrible.

Huntington Electrification
Huntington is presently the terminus of electrification on the Port Jefferson Branch. The project was extended from Mineola and completed October 13, 1970 with service commencing on October 19, and since then the station has become an intermediate transfer point for off-peak riders between electric trains to and from Penn Station and diesel scoot trains to Port Jefferson.  Huntington-Electrification_news-article_DaveMorrison.jpg (131771 bytes)
