Back to back
Title:  Back to back
Description:  The LIRR ran most of its trains with a single unit as they were not heavy enough to need more than that. Some of the Montauk trains were exceptions, such as this weekend only 4012. The Sunday train was sometimes 14 or 15 cars, since it was used to return parlors to the east end for the New York bound trains starting in on Sunday afternoon. Here we see it with a pair of GP 38s rolling out of Queens interlocking

Double down to Port Jeff
Title:  Double down to Port Jeff
Description:  This Port Jefferson train has a pair of GP 38-2s rolling it west as it makes its stop at Mineola. There were a number of trains that ran with pairs of units, rather than just the one that powered most trains. Usually they were the heavier trains-some runs had 14 or 15 cars-and the parlor heavy Montauk trains.
