LIRR doesn't assign equipment to any specific line. One trainset sees multiple lines in a day.

Mixed train at Brentwood (Edward Hand)
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

Well don't sweat it. We'll be seeing more and more M-9's as time goes on, and in a few years we'll be sorry the M-3's are all gone along with any form of front-window viewing...... :(
