Quiet at the Station Before the Storm

Customers bundled against the cold passed through the Huntington Long Island Rail Road Thursday evening, boarding and departing trains that arrived mostly on time.

Platforms normally packed with arriving rush-hour trains were relatively empty as either the impending storm or the holiday week slowed traffic. One woman with a small baby awaited a westbound train that would take her to Jamaica and then on to Long Beach.

Other people quietly awaited arriving passengers or watched the LIRR status board, listened to the loop of messages about safety or used their cellphones to connect to passengers or waiting motorists.

A few lined the platforms, occasionally stamping their feet or pulling scarves up around their mouths.
