LIRR 2072
TUCKAPAUSHA


 

The former Union Pacific 6207, prior to renumbering as 2072 and renaming as TUCKAPUASHA.
The car to the right is the former UP 6208, which will eventually be renumbered 2073 and renamed TUCKAHOE.

This is the interior of one of the two former Union Pacific club lounge cars.
The caption for this photo on the MTA/LIRR Facebook page indicates it was the interior of a parlor car from Greenport to New York City in 1970.
While these may be actual revenue passengeers, I suspect the people in the photo are LIRR employees posing as parlor car passengers.

The former Union Pacific 6207 was placed in revenue service prior to being renumbered and renamed.

It is 1969 and TUCKAPAUSHA is still identified by her Union Pacific number 6207. The car to her left is a former PRR "IMPERIAL" series 4-4-2 sleeper; the car on her right is former NH 6-6-4 sleeper MATUNUCK BEACH, which would later become LIRR 2078 SETAUKET. The train is passing Upjohn's field near Mineola.
