JAMAICA - The Long Island Rail Road is on or close to schedule after morning delays due to a disabled non-passenger train. 

Chopper 12 was over the disabled train just west of the Jamaica station.

An LIRR spokesperson says the broken down non-passenger train triggered delays for passengers heading westbound.

At least a dozen trains were impacted by the delays.
