Two more, kind of "before and after" shots only from opposite directions:

1.  Ping-Pong locomotive pulling train westbound under the Grace Ave. iron bridge E. of Great Neck - c. 1905 (View East:  Third rail not yet installed)

2.  MU train eastbound under the Colonial Road (formerly Grace Ave.) iron bridge E. of Great Neck - c. 1940 (View West)

This iron bridge is designated #N145 and was built in 1897. From a Google Maps view, it appears this bridge is still in place minus the ornamental, wrought-iron handrails and road grating installed in lieu of the original wooden planks (like Ronkonkoma Ave. iron bridge).

Note the timetable rack in the background, as well as the counter at the right upon which the man is leaning his arm.  Also note the dater die (white top) and the bars of the ticket window at the far right.

"G" tower was taken out of service on June 8, 1934, due to the pending grade elimination and the block office relocated inside the

Great Neck ticket office effective January 19, 1935 with a table machine (seen behind the agent's head) to operate the block signals.

Between the OOS date of 6/8/34 and the IS date of 1/19/35, "G" cabin temporary block office was in operation.  Research: Dave Keller

In 1933 the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) was planning to eliminate the congested, some would say dangerous ground level crossing on Middle Neck Road by constructing an overpass. The LIRR insisted that lowering, or "depressing" the tracks, which Great Neck residents wanted, was too expensive. A solution was only arrived at when William and Florence Barstow donated $32,000 to cover the additional cost of lowering the tracks. Seventh Avenue, which joined North and South Station Plaza was renamed in their honor - Barstow Road. Lowering the LIRR tracks through Great Neck was quite a large and complicated job for a small town, involving much planning, surveying, earth moving and old fashioned manpower. Many would argue that track depression is the way most other Long Island communities should have gone, considering the number of ground level crossing accidents and fatalities they've had, and how few incidents Great Neck has had. Still, by 1935, residents had another concern: a sizable fare increase. The cost of the 60-trip ticket rose from $9.46 to $11.40.

Plandome was elevated from the get-go and a bridge over the main road thru there on the west side of the station parking lot has been in place since 1898 when the tracks were extended to Port Washington.  Plandome station itself was opened in 1909 at the elevated tracks which were laid atop a dirt embankment. You can see the tracks descending from the embankment as it curves to head towards Port Washington.  Also visible is the station in an elevated position with the parking area at ground level to the right of the depot building.

The 1909 Plandome depot was burned by vandals and replaced by a station that was very reminiscent of the original structure.  What was sad was that the female station agent had antique LIRR memorabilia hanging on display in the ticket office to bring a little history into the venue.

Port Washington station – opening day – June 23, 1898 with Superintendent W. S. Potter’s business car #200. Check out the wooden building and wooden low-level platform around the depot.  This is the SAME depot there today.  Over the years they bricked the structure and added covered platforms and then covered hi-level platforms.
