LIRR Hempstead Branch Trip Report

We took a ride on the Hempstead Branch on 19 April 2009. We drove to Hempstead and took the train to Flatbush Avenue and back to Hempstead. While on our journey the train stopped at the Hillside Facility, which was something of a treat. On our return trip we sat in the last car and were pleased to see a railfan window, so we were able to get a different perspective for many of the pictures. We were somewhat disappointed by Atlantic Terminal, hoping for an ornate old station but instead finding just modern platforms and a shopping mall.
