LIRR Model Railroads and Scenes
John Bartolotto's - LI City/Dutch Kills/Newton Creek in "Z" Scale 


Welcome to my Long Island Railroad in Z scale.  It is, to the best of my knowledge, the only model layout representing a portion of the LIRR in Z scale.  The theme for the layout is based on the Long Island City/Dutch Kills/Newtown Creek area of Long Island, NY in the 1960's.  It’s an industrial and residential district; having waterfront on the East River and connected with  Manhattan via the Queensboro Bridge. Manufacturers and distributors were numerous in the era and included such diverse goods as food products, machinery, furniture, and footwear.  The “harbor” area of my layout is based on the Dutch Kills/Newtown Creek area of Long Island City (“Kills” in Dutch, the first European inhabitants of LI, means "little stream," or “canal’), which incidentally is one of the most polluted waterways in the US. The backdrop buildings and spur area are based on the LIRR’s Yard A and the engine house and engine service area are based on the LIRR’s Morris Park Engine Shop complex.  Ninety percent of the manufacturers names on the buildings actually were serviced by the LIRR.  John Bartolotto

MANORVILLE

Manorville REA.JPG (77983 bytes)Manorville view E - REA building, later a freight house, which sat in the middle of the wye at Manorville, did not last into the 1960s, but if it had, it might have looked like this.  

In the foreground is the general store which did make it into the 1970s before being demolished.  

Adjacent is evidence of the second spur into the freight house area, in the form of ties which remained long after the rails were lifted after the abandoned spur to the south that previously served a produce house into the 1940's used to store potatoes, cauliflower, etc. until being loaded into freight cars and hauled off. 

The eastern leg of the wye is evident in the background.  All this was gone, of course, by the late 20th century.

Jamesport:  The attractive blonde waiting on the station bench will shortly meet her beau, who is arriving from the City momentarily.  His train of "Mainliner" P-54 coaches is pulled by a G5.  In the background are the potato sorting house of LI Potato Exchange and the Atlantic Fertilizers building.  The team track in the foreground has two freight cars waiting for pickup by the next westbound freight.  In a few short decades, everything in this scene except the main line, its bridge over the road to South Jamesport, and the roads will be gone.  Station, industries, team track, and the blonde have all disappeared

A new 1959 Ford waits patiently as LIRR G5 #28 blocks the Depot Lane crossing, awaiting a highball after making the stop for the very few passengers who boarded or detrained there.  Demise of the Cutchogue stop is in the not-too-distant future.  In the background is the LI Cabbage Association sorting house.  The Mercury outboard motor billboard reminds us how close this scene is to the LI Sound.  As with so much of the railroad-related physical plant on the North Fork, everything in the photo is gone now, except the main line and the highway.

GREENPORT

Greenport Dock view from the Sound: An empty NYC boxcar demoted from LCL service on the Central awaits pickup by the North Fork Freight on a sunny midsummer day.  Its cargo most likely has gone by boat from the Greenport dock to Shelter Island.  When the Greenport Freight pulls the boxcar, they can spot their hack in its place, and enjoy an evening of fishing from the dock!

Alco RS-1 #461 gurgles away on the Pocket Track at Greenport with its short train of leased Pennsy combine and a creaking LIRR P-70 coach, while G5s #28 awaits a highball to begin the westward trek to Jamaica with its train of ping-pong coaches.  Morris Park has recently removed the large Tichy-specified engine numbers from the radiator shutter covers, after crews complained about ripped jackets, and shutter failures occurred due to ice jams behind the large numbers.  Behind the ALCO, a reefer sits at the freight house with ice bunker lids open to provide ventilation for the load of spuds inside.  A beehive of activity in this photo, the best years of railroad service to the North Fork are behind us now. Freight is gone altogether, as is weekend passenger service during the winter.

LIRR G5s #39 at Midlandburg Station on the Midland Valley Rail Road

LIRR G5s #39, in two locations Hillside, and Midlandburg Station, on my freelance Midland Valley Rail Road.

I purchased the G5s in the early 1960's for $49.95 from the original Willis Hobbies on Hillside Ave., in Williston Park. Back then, Willis was owned by a German man named Carl. I do not remember his last name. 

This was my first purchase of a very expensive (for a Bus Driver's salary) brass locomotive. It was listed as a LIRR G5s, and ran great. I left it unpainted for several years. In the early 1980's, I modified the G5s by changing the lowside brass tender, to a Bowser highside tender. Shortly after, it was custom painted and lettered for me by my long time friend and MSBA colleague Louis Dirosso, who some of you know. No. 39 runs good and is still in excursion service on the MVRR.  Daniel Marra, Sr.
