LIRR adds extra trains for Thanksgiving

MINEOLA - Getting around Long Island and the city may be a little bit easier tomorrow as the Long Island Rail Road will offer more service starting in the morning.

The LIRR won't be totally back to normal until debris is removed from all of its lines, and until two tunnels into Penn Station are reopened after sustaining major flooding.

The MTA says it will restore train service between Ronkonkoma and Riverhead tomorrow, with connecting bus service to operate between Riverhead and Greenport.

Other scheduled improvements include the restoration of modified service to Hunterspoint Avenue and the addition of Freeport-Atlantic Terminal trains that stop at Freeport, Baldwin, Rockville Centre, Lynbrook, Valley Stream, Rosedale, Laurelton, Locust Manor and Jamaica. Today, the Long Island Rail Road offered limited service on eight of its 11 branches.
