LIRR Expects Normal Rush Hour Service

Hours after being forced to cancel some PM rush hour trains due to a New Jersey Transit (NJT) train derailment at Penn Station, the MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) announced that it expects normal rush hour service on Tuesday. Here is the quick press release I received:

MTA Long Island Rail Road customers should expect normal rush hour service Tuesday, October 26 as the NJ Transit train that derailed in Penn Station on Monday, October 25 has been re-railed and the track repaired.

The LIRR appreciates its customers’ understanding and patience for the canceled trains and delays endured during Monday evening’s rush hour as the LIRR was limited to using 6 of its 9 regular tracks as the derailed NJ Transit train blocked access to more than half the station tracks at the terminal.
