The year of 1967 must be in error. Maybe it's 1947.
If I remember correctly, there was a NYC subway R-11 fan trip held by the T.I.A. in 1949.
Steve and BM:
I believe that the original 1958 date is correct taking note to these observations:
In the Ronkonkoma Station picture there looks to be a F-M C Liner in the background.
They were not yet on the LIRR in 1947 (built 1951?) and gone by 1967.
Dashing Dan is in evidence on the pictured equipment - not yet in use in 1947.
1967 could make some sense - depending on exactly when the RDCs were retired.
Again the best way would be to check the RMLI ephemera file of past fan trips.
We then could answer our questions...MACTRAXX
