Copiague is a station on the Babylon Branch of the Long Island Rail Road, located in Copiague, New York. The station is located on Marconi Boulevard and Great Neck Road (Suffolk County Road 47), one block north of Oak Street (Suffolk County Road 12). Copiague Station was originally built in 1902, and was rebuilt with temporary high-level platforms for the M1s on October 25th, 1968. The original station was replaced with the current elevated station which opened on August 7, 1973. It is one of the few railroad stations along the Babylon Branch west of Patchogue that was not originally built by the South Side Railroad of Long Island.

Belmont Junction[]

The South Side Railroad of Long Island and Central Railroad of Long Island once had another station in Copiague to the east called Belmont Junction, which was in service between 1873 and 1885.[2] It is not known if the Long Island Rail Road built Copiague Station as a replacement for Belmont Junction, but it had served as one.
