Greenport’s miniature railroad to make a comback

From 1985 to 2012, Greenport was home to one of Long Island’s miniature railroad’s. Tucked behind the home of Frank Field ran a small track called the Peconic County Miniature Railroad.

Today, talks of the miniature railroad returning has surfaced. Greenport Mayor, George Hubbard, has been cited stating that it “is in the works”

According to Southoldlocal.com, Greenport resident Frank Field has a surplus of equipment he is willing to sell to the village, as well as the Greenport Rotary.

It seems like the railroad would be added to Greenports major park on Moore’s Lane, with the Mayor being quoted that it would “be a neat addition up there on Moore’s Lane”

The village believes they “could maybe get a train ride back for next Haloween”

I first created LIParks in 2007 as a simple blog style website that was loaded up with random information about the history or Long Island's vast park system. Eventually the website was turned into a directory style where people would be able to filter parks based on their preferences. I have also started including historic articles and news in regards to Long Island's public lands, parks, and historic sites.
