LIRR expects normal service for Thursday AM rush

The Long Island Rail Road says it anticipates having normal service for the AM rush tomorrow after the latest snowstorm caused cancellations and suspensions throughout

WOODBURY - The Long Island Rail Road says it anticipates having normal service for the AM rush tomorrow after the latest snowstorm caused cancellations and suspensions throughout the day.

MTA officials say service was mostly back on track for the evening commute. They say earlier weather conditions caused three train cancellations and one partial cancellation.

Train service east of Speonk and Ronkonkoma was also replaced by buses. Service has since been restored east of Speonk on its Montauk branch and is expected to be running east of Ronkonkoma by the morning commute.

LIRR spokesman Joe Calderone reports there were 70-percent fewer passengers today, even though the railroad ran a regular schedule of trains. All branches were affected by the weather, but the Oyster Bay, Port Jefferson, Ronkonkoma and Huntington lines were impacted the most.
