NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Long Island Rail Road warned customers to expect more delays to continue for the Wednesday morning rush — and at least until Friday — after a non-passenger train derailed Monday night, damaging one of the four main tracks between Penn Station and Jamaica.
Crews have re-railed two of the four cars that derailed, but all must be re-railed and removed before track work can fully commence. Repairs could last through the end of the week, 1010 WINS reported, and similar delays will persist through Friday.
@LIRRScoop tweeted the following message Tuesday: “Repair to almost 3/4-mile of track expected to take at least til Friday. AM/PM Peak canceled/diverted trains also expected through Friday.”
