BABYLON - The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) will be on a reduced schedule for the Tuesday morning rush following an Amtrak train derailment in an East River tunnel on Sunday.
LIRR officials say the number of trains it operates into Penn Station during the morning commute will be reduced by about 25 percent. Riders are advised to allow extra travel time and expect scattered delays of 10-20 minutes.
Officials are also warning riders that they should expect service disruptions to continue through at least Wednesday while Amtrak works to re-rail the four cars that went off the tracks due to a broken rail.
The massive service changes continue after a total of 23 trains were canceled, delayed or terminated at Jamaica Monday morning, and another 20 eastbound trains were canceled or combined for the evening rush. LIRR
