Plandome is a station on the Long Island Rail Road's Port Washington Branch in Plandome, New York. It is located off Stonytown Road and Rockwood Road, near West Circle Drive and Colonial Drive, and is 18.3 miles (29.5 km) from Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan.
Plandome Station is also located next to the Plandome Country Club.
Plandome station was built in 1909, and as such was the last station to be built on the Port Washington Branch, until the World's Fair station opened in 1939. The track was first laid in 1898 with the building of the Manhasset Viaduct, and Plandome was a flag stop until the station was built. The track was originally at grade level, until it was raised in the area by 1913, and the stone bridge over Stonytown Road was built.
The station also serves as the location of the Plandome Branch of the United States Postal Service. The post office was originally located on the second floor of the station, adjacent to the small waiting room, along the tracks until the fire. After the station was rebuilt, it was rebuilt, as well, and was relocated to street-level.
In the early 2000s, a bus owned by the Long Island Rail Road powered by natural gas skimmed the top of the low bridge near the station, knocking off the top of its roof. The gas, carried in the roof, did not explode, and damage was minimal.
This station has one 10-car-long side platform east of the track.
