School's out! Monday July 15, 1968 we rode our bikes to New Hyde Park station to watch the "freight rush hour", as we referred to the mid-morning hours. Besides the passenger trains (including two westbound Montauks with parlors on the hind end), we shot four eastbound freights, and the westbound local freight (assumed to be L-42). Today, they are working the North Siding which still had several consignees plus the team track. The team track, between the station building and New Hyde Park Road, usually had two or three box cars spotted for unloading...charcoal, appliances, Christmas trees, etc. So here's the drill working the siding with its train holding the main. Note the lanterns hanging on the cab front. First view, west of New Hyde Park Rd.  at the team track. Next, east of the crossing on the siding. And for good luck, part of the eastbound parade at Covert Ave crossing. All of these views about to change forever with the Third Track grade crossing elimination.  Photos/Archive/Info: James Mardiguian

I worked there a few days back in 1965.  One of the duties as clerk was to walk the nearby team track and record freight car numbers for the agent (Mineola?).  As I recall, I sold for the first morning westbound train and then walked the track during the break before the next train was due.  Ticket sales were light, similar to Rosedale and Laurelton.  I don’t think I sold a single eastbound ticket.
