HUNTINGTON, N.Y. — It is a mid-December mid-afternoon at the Long Island Rail Road’s Huntington Station on the Port Jefferson Branch. With predecessor companies starting as far back as 1834, the LIRR carries 355,000 passengers a day, making it number one commuter line in volume in the United States. Here, the diesel continuation of Train 610 from Penn Station New York, led by unit 403, an EMD DE30AC, charges past waiting M7 MU Train number 1701, which will head westbound to Penn Station in a few minutes. With 11 Lines and 124 stations served, both electric and diesel traction are needed for the 45 diesels, 1003 multiple unit cars, and 134 bilevel diesel-hauled coaches.
