Remarks & Notes 
When this slide was taken, I recall one or 2 trains arriving at Long Island City with FA power packs on the west end. All of the other diesel powered arrivals had to be set over and have their unit turned on the Montauk Branch wye. Here 7 of the units have just returned from the wye and are being placed back on the trains for the evening rush hour.

All LIRR, but the majority from the 1970's when I was a budding young railfan growing up in the area.

Railroads displaying American pride, and spirit! Equipment painted Red, White, and Blue! With an honored salute to our troops added too! Patriots can still be found to join this gathering of Pride!
