AR's station was once LIRR, and now it has 2 stations under the subway, a northbound only station (the old LIRR stop) and then a longer walk from AR/N Conduit, both local stops. I wish they had tied into the Airtrain somehow but it's the next stop south at Howard Beach. I think pre-pandemic they dealt with that with a bus from Jamaica station to AR, but not sure if that runs anymore.

I also got to give Steve two thumbs up for saving all of that info on his site, thanks for all of the work!

Aqueduct-North Conduit is actually the elevated LIRR station built in 1940 replacing North Conduit and the
racetrack stops. It has a very long platform (over 1,000' on NB side, over 800' SB), being combined. The north
end of the station was intended to serve the racetrack. The separate NB only racetrack platform was built after
the NYCT takeover in 1956.
