Equipment History

Long Island Railroad commuter coach no. 2937 arrived at the museum in 2008 and went through an extensive overhaul in our shop before entering regular tourist train service in 2011. The coach features 3+2 seating and is painted in the LIRR's dark gray color scheme. The coach seats a maximum of 118 passengers and is currently our only air-conditioned car. 

The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum operates Long Island Commuter Coach No. 2937. Coach No. 2972, another of the original 55 coaches built between 1955 and 1956, is operated by the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, Alabama.
