The one-car-length platform has been constructed and the fresh white concrete slab in place for the metal shelter shed, but the shed has not yet been installed and is still at its former location east of here.  The remains of the old passing siding are visible in the street and, following the old ROW, you can see that the former siding ran right thru what was to become the 1963 relocated station site.

This is the relocated station stop with relocated shelter shed and one-car-length platform west of the former location which was just up the street at the right (behind the photographer), shot from the rear of a Greenport-bound train. 

The old version block limit signal is visible in Makse's image in the center background, just this side of the crossing.  There is a T-box attached to the signal mast.

Note: Agent George F. Wells sold only 4 tickets that entire day and didn't even handle any baggage (note total line on cover). But . . . look at those prices!

With the exception of Riverhead at $.15 ($3.53), New York had the astronomical cost of $2.05 ($48.25), I assume it included the ferry charge, and Long Island City of $2.00 ($47.07).  The record goes to Brooklyn at $3.60 ($84.73). That was a LOT of money back in 1878! Archive/Info: Dave Keller
