Remarks & Notes 
"LIRR Intermodal Bogie Rolls Over the Montauk Cutoff" One of Long Island Rail Road's experimental "Intermodal Bogies" gets dragged down the Montauk Cuttoff to Sunnyside Yard to be cut up for scrap. First introduced in 1988, the bogies were LIRR's way of bringing Piggy Back (TOFC) service to Long Island. Berwick Freight Car Company manufactured the cars to meet the many freight restrictions on LIRR such as height & third rail clearances. Unfortunately the bogie service was cancelled in 1991 following several issues and as a result the cars were placed in storage on the Montauk Cutoff & Hicksville. Fast forward to 2017, Frontier Metals was award the scrapping contract and on June 8th, the scrapping progress was started.
