Floral Park to Mineola/Nassau

From the passenger station at Floral Park (MP 14.9), where an erstwhile line from Great Neck once trailed in from the northwest and the Hempstead Branch turns away southeast, on the south side of the main line continuing just north of due east, the third-rail electrified LIRR Main Line continues just north of due east, past the passenger station at New Hyde Park (MP 16.2), the passenger station at Merillon Avenue (MP 17.3), the passenger station at Mineola (MP 18.5), and the crossovers and junction at Nassau (MP 18.6), where the Oyster Bay Branch turns away north as the main line continues just north of due east.
