Others who know better can likely confirm if this is correct ....I’m no expert, but looking at OpenRailMap, it theoretically could be done, as long as any through-routed Empire Service trains made it to tracks 5-7; tracks 1-4 dead-end under Seventh Avenue.

If this service does come to pass to Ronkonkoma, my guess is that it would take the NYP slots of some LIRR Ronkonkoma trains that will be rerouted to Grand Central Terminal once East Side Access is completed, and I also think that they may cross-honor LIRR tickets like Amtrak does for MARC on its Penn Line.
