Morris Park Locomotive Shop

Project Detail

 

Capture

New, Modern 21st Century locomotive maintenance facility for the railroad’s fleet of DE 30 and DM 30 diesel and dual-mode diesel-electric locomotives and work train diesel locomotives. Construct a new locomotive repair shop to replace the existing 125 year old Morris Park Round House which has surpassed its design life and is presenting an additional maintenance burden on operating resources. The new facility will be better equipped to maintain the LIRR’s current fleet of diesel locomotives used in revenue service as well as the fleet of diesel work locomotives. Customer service will be enhanced through better locomotive reliability and on-time performance.
