    Authorities evacuated a Staten Island Railway train after the last car of a four-car train derailed as it approached the terminal Thursday afternoon, the MTA said.

    The MTA, which operates the railway, said 90 customers were on the train when the car derailed near St. George Terminal shortly before 2 p.m. Eight customers were on the derailed car.

    No injuries were reported, according to the FDNY.

    Customers were transported to the St. George station.

    The railway operated limited local service through the evening rush. Service was then suspended for a time so crews could make repairs. Service resumed before the morning rush Friday.
