Lollipop Farm Train Back on Track!

lollipop tractorThe newly restored Lollipop Farm Train will make its debut this weekend at the Greenlawn Pickle Festival.  On Saturday, September 21, the Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association will host the 34th annual Pickle Festival at the John Gardiner Farm, located at 900 Park Avenue, Huntington. Among the many events and activities, the highlight will be the opening of the original Lollipop Farm Train, which has recently been restored by members of the Historical Association. The train will be open for children to enjoy a ride and experience a piece of Syosset history.  The train was a prime attraction at the Lollipop Farm petting zoo, located at Jericho Turnpike and Jackson Avenue. The original train locomotive has been fitted with a new engine, and the train has been repainted to its original yellow and red color scheme.

In addition to the train, the Pickle Festival will feature hay rides, a corn maze, potato digging demonstrations, antique cars and trucks, home-baked goods and local farm produce. For more information about the Pickle Festival call 631-754-1180. The John Gardiner Farm is located at 900 Park Avenue, Huntington, NY.

Lollipop Farm Train to Roll Again!

Many Syosset residents can recall the great fun they had as children riding the Lollipop Farm train. Soon we will be able to share those memories with our own children and grandchildren. The Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association has acquired the original Lollipop Farm train and is currently restoring it and readying it for installation at the John Gardiner Farm in Huntington.

Lollipop Farm was a petting zoo located at Jericho Turnpike and Jackson Avenue. The farm was owned and operated by Harry Sweeney from the early 1950s until it closed in 1967. One of the great attractions of Lollipop Farm was the Train which carried children through the zoo.

After the Farm closed, the train passed through several owners until it ended up in the storage barn of the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities, where it remained until the current restoration project. The original train locomotive has been fitted with a new engine, and the train has been repainted to its original yellow and red color scheme.

 Restoration of the Lollipop Farm train.

The Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association anticipates that the train will be up and running later this summer.  The John Gardiner Farm is located at 900 Park Avenue, Huntington, NY.
