- The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective
31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything. Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand. See my
sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

Central Railroad of Long Island
Continuation Page 4
[This page was added to my CENTRAL RAILROAD of LONG ISLAND page on 17 Mar 2004; you might wish to see that (et seq.) and the main LI Rail Road page, et seq., and the LI Railroads page, also.]
NOTE: Page size was limited by HTML to some 30kB; thus, I was forced to add this continuation page to fit the LIRR and related information, as well as several other continuation
You may wish to visit my RR page, as well.
There are two related topics here on these pages:
(1) The Long Island Rail Road and (2) Long Island railroad information.
There IS a difference!
The Long Island Rail Road is the official name of the oldest Class 1 railroad still operating under its original name and charter (the B&O was older but has been subsumed into CSX).
Although there remain some offical documents with the two words combined, the correct name of the LIRR has the two words separately:
"Long Island Rail Road"!
There were and are other railroads on Long Island - these also are
(or will be) covered on the LI Railroads page.
However, on this particular page we are specifically concerned with the
Central Railroad of Long Island, sometimes called the "Stewart Road"
or the "Stewart Line", part of which still serves as the
Central Branch of the Long Island Rail Road.
NOTE: To conserve space, I have severely truncated the index on this page; see the LIRR index page.
including LIRR boxcabs #401, the world's first production diesel road switcher,
#402 (first and second), #403, and many others.
Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal Railroad,
and its successor roads, the New York Cross Harbor Railroad and New York Regional Rail.
Degnon Terminal Railroad, etc.

A great group of miniature live steam (and diesel and electric) operators running at mostly 1½" scale (also some 1" and rare 3/4") in Southhaven Park at the intersection of William Floyd Parkway (Suffolk County Route 46) and Sunrise Highway (U.S. Route 27); their site with their PUBLIC RUNNING SCHEDULE and some other live steam links, has been moved to a separate page.
Here is the entire W-E segment of the LIMP, Stewart Avenue, and the Central Branch:
Thanks indeed, Howard; little did you know to what these chance LIMP/CRR conjunctions would lead!
Again, it is so full of information that I am reproducing both the two segments Al sent AND a carefully-pieced full image (within one or two pixels of an exact match, all 1.2Mb of it), all thumbnailed:
