Trains are back on schedule after commuters faced delays into and out of New York City for about three hours Thursday morning due to downed overhead wires at Penn Station.
Service was suspended shortly before 10 a.m. Monday because of a signal problem east of the East River tunnels.
Brooke Bene, who got engaged in April, said she took the ring off one morning while on the 6:38 a.m. train from Huntington to Atlantic Terminal to apply hand lotion.
If you’re looking for a relaxing commute on the Long Island Rail Road, finding it will soon get easier, WCBS 880 Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reported.
Service in and out of the terminal had been suspended early Friday morning due to a signal problem.
The Long Island Rail Road says it expects to have regular service restored by Friday morning, however, it will continue to have a “significantly reduced” rush-hour schedule Thursday afternoon.
There is no light at the end of the tunnel for Long Island Rail Road commuters — at least until Friday at the earliest.
Long Island Rail Road riders are urged to plan alternate routes to and from work until Wednesday as crews work to fix damage caused by a derailed Amtrak train beneath the East River.
