L.I.R.R. TELEGRAPHIC CALL LETTERS,

NUMBERS AND NAMES

FOR STATIONS, BLOCK STATIONS, BLOCK LIMIT STATIONS,

TRAIN ORDER OFFICES, SIGNAL STATIONS,

MANUAL & REMOTE CONTROL (R.C.) INTERLOCKINGS

(Rev. 02/27/17)

 

(Compiled and researched by Dave Keller from employee timetables, Robert M.

Emery’s hand-drawn maps and the knowledge, experience and kind assistance of Art Huneke, Jeff Erlitz and other helpful, knowledgeable railfans)

 

Note:  Numbered cabins and towers also used call letters concurrently due to telegraphic transmission.  In 1907, the tower numbers were dropped per various General Orders and renamed to match their previously identifying calls. (per

past interview between Art Huneke and an old, retired LIRR tower operator.)

 

Note:  It is very possible that the 1880 towers did not have numbers.  Numbers

may have first been used when the block system was installed on the Montauk branch west of Jamaica in 1892.  (per Art Huneke)
