LIRR Service for Presidents’ Day Weekend

The American presidency and railroads have a long history together. From Abraham Lincoln's construction of the Transcontinental Railroad as a show of national unity, to Harry S. Truman's 28,000-mile, 350-speech "Whistle-Stop" tour of America, there is perhaps no greater symbol of American ingenuity and endurance than the railroads.

This Presidents' Day, as our nation commemorates America's highest public office, the Long Island Rail Road is offering details about service for Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 19, and for the long holiday weekend that begins on Friday, February 16.
