This portion actually belonged to the Manorville to Eastport abandonment. LIRR originally only ran to Sag Harbor as it was, at the time, a major port. Austin Corbin had the idea of running trains out to Montauk in order to cut a day or so off of the travel time by boat to Europe. He had intended to build a deep water port in Montauk. But it never came to be. Instead, it turned into a tourist destination.
