40 Years of LIRR Branch Timetables 1974-2014

Effective on May 20,1974 - The LIRR issued its first set of eleven Branch Line timetables...

I believe that these timetables were designed by the MTA to be similar to the three route timetables that began issue on Penn Central's Metropolitan region back in the early 70s: Hudson Line (medium green); Harlem Line (medium blue) and New Haven Line (bright red).

The LIRR timetables, their colors and the original stations covered by them were:

Form 1-Port Washington Branch (scarlet red) from Elmhurst thru Port Washington
Form 2-Port Jefferson Branch (dark blue) from New Hyde Park and Huntington to Port Jefferson
Form 3-Ronkonkoma Branch (purple) from Grumman and Bethpage to Ronkonkoma
Form 4-Oyster Bay Branch (lime green) from East Williston to Oyster Bay
Form 5-Hempstead Branch (beige) from Union Hall Street and Hollis to Hempstead
Form 6-Far Rockaway Branch (brown) from Locust Manor and Valley Stream to Far Rockaway
Form 7-Babylon Branch (turquoise green) from Rockville Centre to Babylon AND PATCHOGUE
Form 8-Long Beach Branch (orange) from Lynbrook to Long Beach
Form 9-West Hempstead Branch (light blue) from St.Albans and Springfield Gardens to Westwood and West Hempstead
Form 10-City Terminal Zone (gray) covers Penn Station-Long Island City-Hunterspoint Ave.-Flatbush Ave/Brooklyn and Jamaica
Form 11-Eastern Long Island (black) covers Bellport to Montauk and Holtsville to Greenport and both Road N' Rail bus routes...

Over time there were changes to these Branch Timetables such as:

1.The stations and lines that were covered, e.g. the shift of Bay Shore thru Patchogue to the Eastern Long Island timetable by 1979.

2. In 1983 the Montauk Branch timetable was created and the Ronkonkoma to Greenport service was placed in the Ronkonkoma Branch timetable. 

3. In January 1988 New Hyde Park, Merillon Avenue and Mineola were placed in the Oyster Bay Branch timetable (until 1992?).

4.  In the 1980s, in particular, the LIRR began to regularly print special branch timetables for track work and other LIRR projects and additionally beginning during the late 80s special timetables like the NY Mets Shea Stadium and Belmont Park began to be issued.

During the early to mid 90s the LIRR experimented with different printing and formats in the Branch Timetables and by the late 90s the current format with black and white printing and some use of the line color became standard. During these years the Montauk Branch timetable began to use teal as its color replacing black and the folder numbers were shifted between the Montauk Branch (becoming Form 10) and the City Terminal Zone (becoming Form 11).

The TDI* Station Timetables have also underwent changes of their own: 

Back before December 1968 they were issued quarterly with seasonal colors: Blue-Winter; Spring-Brown; Summer-Green and Fall-Red and with the December 1968 issues Dashing Dan was dropped for the MTA M logo and all issues from that point until sometime in 1974 - when they began to be issued in the matching Branch Line timetable color - they were all in blue - and for about a two year stretch beginning in mid 1972 - when the older LIRR timetable folders were discontinued - these were the only timetables that were available to the public.
