I have a flight out of JFK and I've decided to take the LIRR to the AirTrain from Long Island, but I'm going to have to make a transfer at Woodside since I'll be on the Port Washington branch. I've only done this once and it was late at night and I remember being totally confused.

So, once I get to Woodside, would I just go to track 4 and take any east bound train? Would the train say Jamaica or will the trains say Ronkonkoma for example?

I also remember having a problem finding track 4. I think that the confusion was that the signs provide the platform and not the track. Track 4 is on the "A" platform, right? And the "A" platform is the furthest from the Port Washington platform?

Thank you in advance for any help!

Any east bound train (aside from Port Wash obviously( will stop at Jamaica, but it will say the branch/final destination, not Jamaica. You do want platform A, which is the all the way to the right if you're facing East.
