Welcome to Long Island Live Steamers
Long Island Live Steamers may well be the best kept secret on Long
Island. Although thousands of visitors enjoy visiting and riding on our
railroad every year, most Long Islanders have either never heard of us,
or if they have, have yet to visit us on one of our "Public Run Days."
Since most of our advertising is "word of mouth," those folks who do
find us are usually very surprised by how much fun a day with Long
Island Live Steamers really is!
Located in Southaven County Park, in Brookhaven (between exits 57
& 58 off Route 27), Long Island Live Steamers is a 501(c)3, not for
profit organization, operating for the education and enjoyment of the
public, and to preserve the history and wonderment of the glory days of
Our twice monthly Sunday Public Run Days find rideable steam, diesel
and electric trains operating on eight acres of scale tracks. While our
"Layout Page" details the track plan of our two railroads, only a
personal visit, and the smiles of visiting adults and children alike,
really explain what LILS is all about.
Enjoy your on-line visit. But, mark your calendar now for an in
person visit, and then climb aboard to enjoy the sights, sounds,
smells, and excitement of "Live Steam Railroading" right here in Your Long Island backyard!
See you out here soon!
