The Price Parkway spur is located in Farmingdale, right off the Main Line. This spur is very extensive, and goes in an odd track pattern. Esentially, this spur is a big loop, with a few sidings to different customers here and there. Comming off the main is a switch, one half goes east behind P.C. Richards Warehouse, and another goes North to the large network. The bulk of products shipped here was in boxcars. Price Parkway hasn't seen an active customer in quite a few years, and it is unlikely it will again ( unless P.C. Richards receives service ) because although of the tracks were recently paved over, and some are removed. This spur would be a good candidate for storage since the switch to the main line is still intact.

General Motors Spur

This spur is located in Bethpage, just west of B Tower. This spur is located right by the Central Railway ROW. This spur travels South from the switch down to a warehouse. This spur also appears in the 1966 Freight Customers Book. More photos to come soon. Thanks to Pat Masterson for this Spur info and Photos

Riverhead Town Trackage

The following photos are of the trackage in the heart of Riverhead. There is a decent amount of track just in this small area.

Switch off the siding that enteres into Slaters. There is another switch inside the fence, And this spur once served as a LILCO track.

The rest of the siding is burried under debris and ballast

Looking back east you can see the switch leading into Slaters and the other switch to get to the buildings. The spur looking east once served LI Ice Co. and LI Caul Association
