On this program we observe awesome Summer action on the LIRR Montauk Branch at various locations including West Islip, Brightwaters, Islip, Great River, Oakdale, and Sayville.
Witness the LIRR fleet of GP38-2’s blasting by at track speed with their long trains from the Hamptons/Montauk. These engines were the pride of the passenger fleet for over 20 years and were revered by engineers. Indeed the GP38-2’s are among the finest EMD locomotives ever built, and they are still running on many railroads including this one, but currently as freight units.
Also witness the eclectic fleet of power cars such as FA, MP15, and F units. You will hear K5LA horns primarily with a couple of P5 horns for good measure. See sparks fly from the brakes, and a stuck horn on Alco FA power car.
Shot by legendary LIRR videographer Tim Hosey who has captured a great many scenes of the Long Island Railroad in this golden era of the 1990s and is still capturing trains on this railroad today.
