Just a few minutes ago, I received word from the LIRR that buses will replace early morning trains between Port Washington and Great Neck due to emergency track drainage repair work. Here are the complete details:
The MTA Long Island Rail Road will substitute buses and vans in place of early-morning train service between Port Washington and Great Neck this Saturday, August 27 as LIRR workers carry out emergency track drainage repair work in the single track section of the Port Washington Branch in Manhasset. Two eastbound and two westbound trains will be affected.
The 1:19 AM and 1:39 AM trains from Penn Station to Port Washington will terminate at Great Neck. Customers on these trains traveling to Manhasset, Plandome and Port Washington will board a bus or van at Great Neck for the remainder of their trip. Affected eastbound customers should allow up to 27 minutes additional travel time depending on their final destination.
The 2:10 AM and 3:40 AM trains from Port Washington to Penn Station will originate instead from Great Neck. Westbound customers at Port Washington, Plandome and Manhasset stations will board a bus or van for the trip to Great Neck, and then a train to points west. Affected westbound customers should allow up to 30 minutes additional travel time depending on their final destination.
Customers are advised to pick up the special Port Washington Branch timetable card for early-morning travel on Saturday, August 27.
