West Chemical made CN disinfectant cleaner (Motto: "You can't spell clean without CN"). CN was an iodine-containing product sort of like Betadine lotion, but it was made with industrial-grade ingredients instead of pharmaceutical-grade. As a result it smelled of iodine with a strong overtone of dead fish. Stink track, indeed!   Albert Waltien

VanIderstine's rendering plant in LIC was living on borrowed time in this scene of a triple header, lead by 1554,1557 and a third RS-3, passing by the plant at Greenpoint Ave. In the 60's and 70's, traffic through BLISS was sufficient to justify an operator around the clock (with two tricks on the weekends). Quite a piece of railroad back then. Both secondary tracks to LIC were still in service; passenger trains still ran to LIC; and the Navy Yard lead, Maspeth Yard and Nichols siding had plenty of business to make it serious business to keep local switchers out of the way of Yard A haulers.

LIRR Eng 208 light
Penny Bridge NY 5/74

It's about 10:30 AM on May 2, 1974 and Eng 208 extras back to Morris Park for midday servicing after bringing a morning train into Long Island City. Penny Bridge was one of the last extant pure PRR standard shelters and this classic design was the architectural inspiration for the first modern era shelters that started appearing along the South Shore in the 90's.

LIRR #1519,1520 passing St. Saviour, Maspeth 04/04/65

St. Saviour's Church was on the corner of Rust St. & 57th Drive. The grade crossing in the picture is Maspeth Avenue. As I understand, the church was dismantled and from the view on bing.com, the property has been leveled.

The building immediately on top of the crossing watchman's shed is the old Maurice mansion. The Clinton Diner is still there and always had good food. It had to with the traffic at that intersection and the busy industry around there. While it got some movie fame in later years, it still had a reputation for good food. Info/Photo: Richard F.

It's 5:35 PM on 7/19/67 and RS-3 1557 makes light work out of its six car consist (including the heavyweight private club car Locust Valley on the head end. Flushing Avenue, later rebuilt as an undergrade crossing, once featured an interlocking tower (Olivet) to control the former trolley crossing. This is as mountain railroading as it gets on the LIRR, with a reasonably tough two-mile long 1.8 percent grade, the LIRR's only helper district during the days of steam. Olivet grade was enough to rate "G" plates on the eastbound position light automatic block signals. Alas, LIRR freights during the 70's rarely had the length or the tonnage to pass these signals on a Rule 291. It still was a great piece of railroad.

LIRR Extra 419 Nichols Siding, Maspeth 1974 

Photo: Richard F. Makse rfm@twinney.com

 

May 2, 1974. Mid morning. The Empire State Building just to the right of center and the fabled Kosciusko Bridge above. You're at the private grade crossing into the Phelps Dodge copper refinery. Nichols Siding, named after the Nichols Copper Co In the 50's and 60's, you could go to Nichols Siding at virtually any time and find a train in motion.

The lead to Phelps-Dodge is the track to the left of the train. This landmark industrial site on Newtown Creek, was long the LIRR's best freight customer and was so important as to justify its own freight clerk and station designation ("Laurel Hill"), a job that worked in one of the myriad ancient brick buildings of the complex until the early 60's. Phelps-Dodge, a company with ancient roots in NYC and a supply link to copper mines off the SP and the Tucson, Cornelia and Gila Bend in far away Arizona, signaled to the world why the ancient and fragrant colonial waterway of Newtown Creek represented the greatness of New York at the inland port of Maspeth. 

If you went to Nichols on a weekday afternoon at 4 PM, it was like going to heaven and dying; deadhead passenger, light engines, local and through freights, and scheduled passenger trains.

LIRR Train #1831 Eng 1557 Pond Tower 9-12-69

One of the scheduled crew riders to Long Island City, 1557 pulls a ping and an American Flyer bar car (probably a former B&M car) past newly painted Pond Tower. The wires are still hot on the NY Connecting above and a Saxby and Farmer product still controls the switches and signals at this still busy tower.

Dropping sand on the second curve west of Fresh Pond, Eng. 204 leads the private club car Oyster Bay, six coaches and a bar up the 1.8 percent Mt. Olivet grade. During steam days, this was a helper district on the LIRR and still features "G" plates on the two position light signals governing the hill.

Fremont Tower 6-23-53

Back 50 years ago, Fresh Pond Junction was an important place with freights of the New Haven and LIRR serving the 11 mile long Bay Ridge Branch. 36 year old Fremont Tower in Ridgewood, Queens, literally on the Brooklyn border, handled authorities for both railroads on the branch. Here a passenger extra approaches Fremont northbound, ready to make the right turn to the Montauk Branch.  Photo: Richard F. Makse

LIRR Triple header Glendale Atlas Terminal 1971

While Atlas Terminal was only a shadow of its former self, the former Glendale freight station, now a diner in this scene, gave ample testimony to the importance of this pocket-sized terminal to the LIRR's Montauk Branch. Atlas once stabled as many as three industrial switchers to handle traffic on the tight curves of this early industrial park. It's January 1971 and a glimmer of the high winter sun lights up the twilight years of first generation diesels like RS-1 265. Photo: Richard F. Makse

Patchogue 1964

The 1963 station at Patchogue had been one of the early goals of Bob Waldbauer's long administration as Mayor of Patchogue. Back nearly 40 years ago, people in Patchogue still talked about the Lace Mills and the old turntable hard by the river. Mayor Bob still occupies a place of honor on the list of great people who crossed my path.

This view of a two-car train 56, with a P-72 and a B&M coach, dates from July 1, 1964. The pride that Tom Goodfellow and his staff felt in the Route of the Dashing Commuter is evident in the cleanliness of 1554 and its two-car consist.

 The passing siding is the first track to the left of the Main .  The team track is the 2nd track to the left of the Main and the coal bunker/silo of T. C. Warren & Co. at the far left was accessed by the spur continuing to curve northeastwards, just visible beyond the “T” box and telephone pole visible in the center of the photo.

The undergrade crossing in the foreground is Quogue-Riverhead Road , SR104 which was used to access the station parking lot at the far right. Research: Dave Keller

Mason PEAKS and Mason MINTS were confectionery products made by the Mason, Au & Magenheimer Confectionery Mfg. Co. located at 22 Henry St. , Brooklyn until 1949. At that time they re-located to Mineola (later 150 Old Country Road , Carle Place ), Long Island . Mason Peaks was a candy bar (bar shaped) with coconut covered in chocolate. A Mason Mint was a round, chocolate-covered mint patty. Mason also made Dots and Crows which are now owned by Tootsie Roll.

LIRR Freight Eng 449 Newsday NY 4/21/65

A westbound road freight rumbles through Newsday crossover on the Central Extension. The track through the gate on the left leads to the Newsday plant. About 100' to the rear was the site of the former Newsday platform, used by the Mitchel Field shuttle until 1953. On the right is the one box car spot for Mercury Millwork. An absolutely fascinating piece of the LIRR that saw freights, race trains, circus trains and MU's and trolleys during its heyday.

Boeing 747 superjet wing load "This Car Excess Height - No Running Board" stencil 

Not The Biggest - But certainly one of the most unusual and valuable shipments on the LIRR in recent memory is housed in the special freight car shown. The car, 61' 8" long and 15' 7" above the rail is one of three soon to be increase to eight, used to ship the Boeing 747 superjet wing control surfaces from Fairchild Hiller's Republic Aviation Division plant in Farmingdale to the Boeing plant in Everett, Wash. The two 28 foot long ailerons are shown being loaded into the car. Photos/Archive: Art Huneke

While freight traffic on Long Island had been decreasing year after year, I never thought, when I took this photo, that the passenger train would soon be reduced to one car and most freight sidings would be torn up and idle. GLF was always a busy siding.

In 1920, the New York State Grange, the Dairymen’s League, and State Farm Bureau combined to organize the Grange League Federation (GLF). In 1962 became Agway, based in Syracuse.
