Remarks & Notes 
A trio of MP15ACs, considered class E15 locomotives as per LIRR timetable, shove the Ringling Brothers circus train east on the Garden-Mitchel Secondary towards Quentin Roosevelt Boulevard for unloading. Rumor has it 2015 was the last year the Ringling Brothers train will visit LIRR rails. If this is true, the Secondary will only be used to store track maintenance equipment and unused freight cars. Engine 152, first out in this consist, was the last MP15AC on the Long Island to use an old-cast P5 air horn and the 171, second out, was the last one to wear the original New York State paint scheme of blue and yellow, first adopted in the early 1990s.
