Trains are back on schedule for New Jersey Transit after a switch problem Friday disrupted morning service for commuters.
Northeast Corridor, New Jersey Coast Line and Midtown Direct trains were affected earlier Thursday, according to NJ Transit.
This morning’s commute was much smoother, with NJ Transit having recovered from this week’s derailment. But it might not be smooth for much longer.
A fire department spokesman says the derailment of a No. 6 train occurred near the 125th Street station at 4:14 a.m. Wednesday.
Commuters who were dreading their subway commute home can breathe a sigh of relief.
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.
Spokesman Dan Stessel says service was restored just before 5 a.m. Tuesday, nearly 17 hours after a derailment kept trains from using nine tracks.
A derailed NJ Transit train that snarled the evening commute for tens of thousands of travelers is back on the tracks.
