Here, in a magnificent photographic essay, is the complete story of one of America's oldest and most unusual railroads, whose operations once included far-flung steamboat and ferry, as well as trolley services, and whose roadbed runs from the black tubes under the East River to the sandy wilderness of Montauk, NY. The Long Island Rail Road hauls more commuters than any other system in the US.
