    If Sen. Schumer gets his way, some commuters will be able to work as they go.

    Service on several Manhattan-bound LIRR trains was briefly suspended and is now delayed this evening because of switch problems on the Queens side of the East River.

    According to MTA.Info,  the City Terminal Zone, Babylon, Far Rockaway, Hempstead, Long Beach and Montauk branches were suspended at 4:55 p.m.  It was restored shortly after 5:15. p.m.

    According to an MTA bulletin: "LIRR service is experiencing residual westbound delays of up to 25 minutes due to earlier Amtrak signal problems east of the east river tunnels. Eastbound service is running on or close with a few trains being canceled and combined."
