    The new Atlantic Terminal Pavilion of the Long Island Rail Road is seen from outside January 5, 2010 in Brooklyn.

    Long Island Rail Road service to Brooklyn was temporarily suspended after a train derailed.

    LIRR spokesman Mike Charles said the first two wheels of a train going eastbound from the Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn derailed at 4:40 p.m. on Thursday. He said nobody was injured.

    Investigators are trying to figure out what caused the derailment.

    Charles said passengers needing to go to Brooklyn should go to Penn Station instead and take the subway. NYC Transit continues to honor LIRR tickets at Atlantic Terminal and Jamaica Station.

    Limited LIRR service has been restored between Atlantic Terminal and Jamaica Station with heavy delays expected.
