It makes no sense for MTA to own those stations and have to fund improvements.... should be sitting with the communities they're in.

Which present LIRR stations are not owned by the LIRR/MTA? We're not talking about the parking lots.
I believe there are four (or maybe 4-1/2) of them.

Nostrand and ENY didnt surprise me, the whole grade separation along atlantic ave was city project, wasnt it?

I noticed there seems to be fewer trains operating east of Patchogue. I don't hear the trains sounding 14L for the crossings east thereof as much as before. Also, recently I was fed a rumor of furloughing 400 Trainmen and 75 Engineers. Any ideas?
