The busiest railroad in North America, the Long Island Railroad carries 265,000 customers each weekday on 735 trains over 700 miles of track on 11 different branches. All but one branch converge at the Jamaica Station hub. A complex system of interlocking switches and flyovers allows trains to move through eight station tracks serving five passenger platforms. Through historic photographs, this book chronicles the history of the LIRR's nerve center. David D. Morrison is a retired Long Island Rail Road branch line manager and railroad historian. He is the author of three other railroad history books, including Long Island Rail Road Stations, and numerous magazine articles.
