Mineola/Nassau to Hicksville

From 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, the third-rail electrified main line continues just north of due east, past the passenger station at Carle Place (MP 20.4), the passenger station at Westbury (MP 21.4), the passenger station at Hicksville (MP 24.8), and the crossovers and junction at Divide (MP 24.9), where the Port Jefferson Branch heads north-northeast, and the main line turns south-southeast.
