Commuters, Rejoice! LIRR Service Back to Normal

View Comments ()




    Long Island Rail Road says normal service is back, much to the relief of delay-weary commuters.

    The railroad is operating 143 trains for Friday morning's rush and 126 trains during the evening commute.

    Commuters have had to endure service disruptions since Monday due to a derailment in an East River tunnel.     

    LIRR says repairs to the damaged track have been completed.     

    The damage was caused by the derailment of an empty Amtrak train on Sunday.
