"Actually the LIRR having sleepers kind of surprised me too ,"

"This was the first I heard of the LIRR sleepers ."

But those are not sleepers... they were parlor cars.  Just like the NYC, the cars had their sleeper carbody and configuration but they were sold as private rooms on some of the LIRR trains for daytime use as parlors, and this applied to both heavyweight and lightweight cars.  The first page of the LIRR listings in my Index will lead you to many great shots of these "former" sleeper cars, and links to Jack Deasy's pages will even show some in use in their former owners paint.
