    It would be cool to see the LIRR content extended to the east on the Ronkonkoma line and actually finish in Ronkonkoma. Adding the Babylon and Port Jeff Line as well as the diesels that run from Babylon to Montauk and Ronkonkoma to Speonk

    I agree, it should definitely be possible to extend the route further to Ronkonkoma being that the recently released Peninsula Corridor route spans 47 miles in route length. With that said, I hope the PWB and Oyster Bay Branch trackage get extended.

    They should also add the Port Washington Branch that Starts at Woodside to Port Washington

    Definitely a good idea! America’s busiest route, however quite quiet on TSW. A new loco and route extension would be a great addition

    the track speeds around the mineola Branch onto the oyster bay Branch have the track speeds limit at 30 so hopefully they’ll add oyster bay onto TSW someday soon in the future.

    I hope they extend the lirr route to Port Jefferson which it’s 59.8 miles I think and hopefully include the dual mode diesel locomotive because i know that track 8 in Jamaica is only used for Diesel locomotives and in race day scenario there’s a M7 electric locomotive on track 8 at Jamaica station.

    my great uncle use to live in ronkonkoma I would love to drive the ronkonkoma line someday since ronkonkoma is all electric and it would definitely be cool to stop at ronkonkoma.
