Long Island Rail Road




The LIRR was the first railroad I remember. My dad worked as a gateman back in the days before automatic grade crossing gates were installed. He stayed in a small shanty until a bell went off telling him that a train was approaching. He would go out onto a small platform and manually crank the gates down until the train passed.

Here are groups of photos I took on various trips on the LIRR starting in the 1970s.
