East end of LIRR platform now in service



On January 31, 2009, the LIRR trains began serving the renovated eastern half of the Seaford station platform, and the western half was closed for work. The photos above show the almost-hidden entrance to the platform from the south side of the ticket office; the new waiting room, and the new platform. The available stairs are at Washington Avenue and adjacent to the south side of the ticket office. The problem is that the ticket machines are on the northside, with inadequate markings that one must walk around the barricades to get to the stairs. The decorations on the waiting room windows are remarkable and commendable. Please click on the photo for magnification.

The elevator and escalator are not yet in service.
