The Babylon Branch as a separate operational entity began as the electrification of the Montauk Branch between Valley Stream and Babylon on May 20, Eventually, this would also include the former " Springfield Branch " which the Montauk Branch was relocated to northeast of Springfield Junction.

The tracks were elevated from ground-level between and Elevation of the line sparked grass-roots efforts to preserve the previous versions of Wantagh and Lindendurst Stations, the former of which resulted in the creation of the Wantagh Railroad Museum.

The last station to be elevated on the branch was Massapequa Park on December 13, In anticipation, all stations that were still at grade level had their platforms converted from low-level to high-level an increase of 4 feet from late to late in time for when the fleet went into service.

All stations that had been elevated were equipped with single high-level island platforms, except for Babylon, which had two platforms. The call for high-level platforms was due to the M1 lacking steps that the fleet they were replacing had, and to make travel times quicker by several minutes.

Work on grade separation began in The stretch of track between Amityville and Lindenhurst was grade-separated, with new high-level platforms on elevated viaducts, on August 7th, Finally, beginning in the stretch of track through Massapequa Park was elevated and opened on December 13th, Since the s, many station houses along the branch have been rebuilt, including the entire platforms at Seaford from July to July , Massapequa from late to mid , and Wantagh from late to late Additionally, from July to April 10, the signals, switches, and gantries were replaced between Wantagh and Amityville, with color light signals replacing the old position-light signals installed during the elevation of that section in , and work is underway is well into the closing stages of a pocket track East of the Massapequa station that will run in between the two running tracks, this was to be completed by Spring , but is currently on hiatus.

Plans for the future include the modernization of Babylon Interlocking, viaduct track replacement at certain stations, replacement of platforms, escalators, and elevators at Babylon. Those 4 stations are the only ones on the branch that are not ADA accessible. Stations[ edit ] West of Lynbrook , most trips go on to terminate at Penn Station , with some trips ending at Jamaica or Hunterspoint Avenue.
