There are more oddities, on the Port jeff line. There's two eastbound weekday trains in the evening, that leave Huntington at 7:15pm and 7:28pm.
Also I never understood with the recent weekend service improvements on the Huntington line, why stations like CSH get service every 30 min but Westbury still remains once an hour.
The LIRR treats Westbury and Carle Place the same on weekends, but Westbury is much, much busier than Carle Place.
They should have both those Huntington trains stop at Westbury, with every other one at Carle Place, which would remain once an hour.
Then you have the oddities on the Montauk line on weekends, where most of the MTK trains don't even stop at Babylon. Some skip Patchogue as well I think. Babylon and Patchogue are main stations, by having the train skip them it really needlessly incovienences the riders who would want to transfer from a local train.
Also the 11:30am eastbound weekday MTK train skips Hicksville even though it uses the mainline. Another pointless oddity.
It is confusing the there isn't a schedule for mainline stops only, it would say "MAIN" on it and list all the trains that stop at stations on the main line (Hicksville, Westbury, Carle Place, Mineola, Merillion, NHP).
Blue trains would be HUNT and purple would be RONK.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
