"...Beautiful selection again. Each one is a classic in it's own right, since each tells a different aspect of the LIRR's development. #1 is Morris Park with a huge fleet variety represented; #2 #3 talks about the mix of modern MU cars; #4 is the passing of an era when LIRR was built in the 20th Century, and passed into the 21st; #5 is the railroad I came to know and love in the early 1950's, and the era I will always love best; #6 just blows me away, since it could possibly be re-enacted, but the original scene is preserved in color no less!..."  Richard Glueck 01/18/07
