Along the lines of my Patchogue drawing attached.  The c.1890 Patchogue image was done either with pen and ink or as an engraving (wood or metal plate) like the illustrations of newspapers and magazines of the 1890s. Check out the roof tree along all the ridges and the large roof-tiled "P" on the front dormer.  Patchogue was not alone with this large identifying letter.  Amityville had a large roof-tiled "A"  and Roslyn had an "R."  This is all corroborated via photographic provenance.  (See photos below). All old images of Glen Head that I've seen, however, do NOT show a "G" on that station's dormer.  Research: Dave Keller

Brick Station Building B-1 isn't exactly the same as Roslyn, but is similar with the clipped ridge corners.  It's also minus the large covered platforms. Info: Dave Keller
