CENTER MORICHES - The Long Island Rail Road has canceled trains for the Thursday AM rush as another snowstorm pummels the area.

The LIRR says it ran on schedule for the Wednesday evening commute, but delays started to build up as the snow rolled in. The railroad has canceled 14 out of 143 trains scheduled to run tomorrow. Official say they have been using its anti-freeze trains and switch heaters to deal with the accumulating snow.

LIRR spokesperson Joe Calderone says the railroad is following up on problems outlined in a preliminary report released today on the LIRR's performance during the Dec. 26 blizzard.

Officials say that if snow totals reach 10-13 inches, there may be more cancellations.
