Re: Long Island City...

Who said anything about running cab forward?

Many Oyster Bay Trains MOST DEFINITELY had one MP15 on either end, and right till the end in the late 90's.
It was actually fairly common on the Oyster Bay Branch. Another place you would see it was on the Ronkonkoma to Greenport line. You never or rarely saw it on either the Port Jeff line or the Montauk/Patchogue Branch.

Here's a photo of one in 1992 with an MP15 on either end in Medford. Another oddity seen here on the Greenport scoot was two parlor cars (red stripe). While in the summer, they would be on Montauk trains, in winter, they often put them on the Greenport scoot.
