I believe it was the 8:21am out of Jamaica. Sometimes it went down the Montauk branch and sometimes we would go on the mainline and cut across the central branch to Babylon. Either way, it was a nice way to ride to Islip on a Saturday.Isn't that the summer schedule for the Cannon Ball? OR was. All parlor, too. Actually came out of L.I. City at one time.
Also, LIC and HPA are closed on Saturdays (and Sundays).
This summer, there is a train 8702 leaving Jamaica at 8:16am, first stop after Jamaica is Bay Shore. It arrives in Montauk at 10:53am. I assume this is the same train the reader refers to. Not sure where it originates. Jamaica is the first stop where passengers can board.
