Photo taken above left on the evening of 02/07/1978. Long Island  had from 20 inches to over 2 feet of snow. Two weeks before this, we had a storm that dumped up to 18 inches. Now THAT was a winter to remember! The train was used as a shuttle/snow patrol train, shuttling people to Woodside. Train is going east on Number 1 track, 2 had not been used yet. Info: Bob Anderson

LIRR GP38-2 #256 M-1 train Snow Emergency 1994 It was either an alcohol train, or a snow Patrol. In either case the RR would run them up and down the branches to clear the snow off the rails and 3rd rails. Just happens to have a GP-38 on one end instead of a MP-15 on both ends. My best guess would be an alcohol train since there are m-1's are in the middle. Info: Robert Anderson
