    I posted on this on the TS 2020 thread by mistake...

    LIRR Oyster Bay Branch (1/2 way there already - Mineola)
    LIRR Ronkonkoma Branch (already to Hicksville).

    I wouldn’t mind seeing the oyster bay Branch and the ronkonkoma Branch since they’ve already got ronkonkoma service but some of the ronkonkoma service train’s go in the Huntington direction.

    Hopefully they’ll release the port Washington Branch sometime soon.

    I honestly do believe that dovetail should extend their current routes that they have or at least try to. It wouldn't be that difficult to add a additional 23.5 niles to the Ronkonkoma branch

    it takes 29 minutes and 39 seconds to get to syosset from Jamaica I don’t know how many minutes it would take from Jamaica to Huntington but it’s a 17 minute train ride from Hicksville to Huntington.

    Well the distance from Hicksville to Ronkonkoma is 23.5 miles. I honestly don't know why that wasn't added in to be honest
