Derailment on Long Island Causes LIRR Delays

A non-passenger train has derailed in Long Island City, blocking the rail yard where diesel trains are stored.

Port Jefferson and Oyster Bay branches customers are the most affected as more cancellations and delays are expected. They should travel to Penn Station, Woodside or Jamaica for eastbound service.

New York City Transit is cross-honoring fares for customers to take the 7 train to Woodside, where LIRR service is available. Some eastbound trains will make added stops at Woodside to accommodate customers.
