Most train service was restored for Tuesday evening?s rush hour, with even fewer delays and cancellations expected for Wednesday morning.
Six trains in total were canceled for Tuesday night, but most across-the-platform transfers were available from Jamaica, according to the LIRR. There were also track changes as crews continue to repair the damage caused by Sunday?s derailment.
Tuesday morning, however, was another story. The LIRR had numerous train cancellations and residual delays, causing headaches for commuters. Twelve westbound, rush-hour trains were canceled for the morning commute and nine eastbound trains from Flatbush Avenue were canceled.
The LIRR said the cancellations prompted added station stops, which led to residual delays. Officials also said that not all scheduled connections were available at Jamaica due to the schedule changes.According to the LIRR, more than 200 employees have been working on fixing the switches and track that were damaged in the derailment.Long Island Rail Road Service AlertMore LIRR delays and cancellations anticipated
