The Long Island Rail Road was operating on or close to schedule Friday morning after a broken rail had caused several delays and at least one cancellation during a three-hour span.

The commuter rail service said at about 9 a.m. it was near normal after several trains were delayed up to 15 minutes on the Port Jefferson branch because of a broken rail east of Cold Spring Harbor.
