    I'm very sorry to hear this as J.J. Earl was an invaluable resource and a 'true" railroad man. He was always able to answer my questions in a concise and timely manner as you can read as follows: RIP...

    I have added his Q&A email with me about Patchogue operations as new material which he never published.

    It is at the following location along with other anecdotes: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/JJEarlAnecdotes.htm a great read BTW. Regards, Steve

    I can sure relate to such a loss. A few of my RR friends have gone this past year. One just this past September. He'd become a long time friend and what a source for answers. Not many left these days.

    I am sorry to hear of Mr. Earl's passing. I did not know him, but today when I was researching a terrible NY Central accident in 1940, I came across the name of the engineer, Jesse Earl. I wonder if it is possible that the two were related?
    :sad:
