Inspection and repair on the MU fleet (about 1,000 cars) and heavier repairs on diesel coaches.

Ronkonkoma - NYP train stopped there tonight. It that a flag stop for employees, or are specific trains scheduled to stop there? First time I’ve seen that.

Here's your answer:

I believe, though not 100% certain, that Boland's is an employee stop for Brooklyn trains running by Morris Park diesel yard just east of where they plunge into the Atlantic Av tunnel

It's also the headquarters for the staff of LIRR's Engineering Department.
