Welcome to the Long Island Railroad Page. The Long Island Railroad uses an assortment of equipment at the present time. Equipment such as EMD GP38-2s, EMD MP15ACs some which have been modified to act as a hotel power source for ex-MU's cars which are now in diesel service. The Long Island Railroad also has an assortment of converted Alco Cab Units(FA1/FA2s) and converted EMD Cab Units(F7As, and one F9A)which have been stripped of their prime movers and fitted with 600hp engines to provide power for trains in push-pull service, they are also used as a control cab usually on the west end of diesel-hauled trains. Unfortunately, the GP38-2s and all of the HEP/Cab Control converts days are numbered. By the end of 1999 all of the Long Island Railroad's GP38-2s and HEP/Cab Control units will be retired. The GP38-2 will be sold back to EMD for refurbishing and will then be leased to regional and shortline freight railroads across the United States. Al HEP/Cab Control units will be scrapped. New EMD engines(DE30ACs and DM30ACs) will replace the aging diesel fleet. The only engines that will remain will be the MP15ACs and SW1001s which will be mainly in freight service, which is now run by New York and Atlantic Railroad. The railroad also has 756 M-1 MUs and 174 M-3 MUs which haul the majority of passengers on the 750 trains daily.
