Hi,
 
I always thought of the LIRR's "double deckers" as true double deckers, but actually they are not. Their height was limited due to the tunnel height limitations. The walkway was halfway between the upper and lower seats. You stepped down for the lower seats and stepped up for the upper seats. Interesting cars, and as I remember it, they ran fairly smoothly.

 
Hi Alan,
 
Yes this is a very interesting car compared to the cars of that time and modern cars today. It is a shame it is not open for tours.
 
NOTE: The yellow and orange cabooses with the snowplow belong to the NRHS Twin folks. I had always thought it was owned completely by the RR museum

To my surprise I saw 2 new Strasburg Railroad coaches sitting on a siding. They were The Marion Parlor Car No.88 and Grasshopper Level No.59. I was not the only SRR fan here today
