Schedule for the first day of scgedule operation, July 29, The reason for this rather complicated plan was the impossibility, at the time, of building a railroad through southern Connecticut.
This route was entirely within Queens County mlntauk, and avoided the Brooklyn law. The only remaining business was to serve Long Island itself, something the railroad was not built to do. The LIRR’s reason for existence was gone.
