NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Commuters who were dreading their subway commute home can breathe a sigh of relief.

The MTA said that as of 2:15 p.m., all regular service had resumed on the B, D and Q lines.  A spokesman for the agency said crews “worked diligently throughout the day” to make the necessary repairs after the derailment of a work train just north of the DeKalb Avenue station in Brooklyn on Tuesday morning.

Earlier in the day, the B, D, and Q lines were running with a number of service changes.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t the only headache commuters were left coping with Tuesday morning: a Long Island Rail Road train struck a vehicle, causing disruptions, and a commuter bus crashed in New Jersey.
