  1. Great info about electric train service on the Oyster Bay branch. I lived in Albertson for 471/2 years; around the block from the old right of way of Vanderbilt Motor Parkway; and never knew about plans for a combined Albertson-East Williston train station; despite being a life-long railroad buff. I even remember when the bridge over the train tracks was torn down in Oct.1984 (I believe you stated 1983); but I watched them destroy my old hang-out. Also, according to Ron Ziel’s book, Albertson’s second station was built in 1913; not 1911 as you indicated. Anyway, moved to Albertson in 1965-five years after combined station idea was shot down; and lived there until 2013. Great stuff-I’ll have to look at all your other train info. Thanks !
