The Long Island Rail Road said trains on its Port Jefferson branch are back on schedule after an earlier broken rail condition in the Huntington area that caused 10-to-15 minute delays Monday.

The announcement came just before 7:30 a.m.

Earlier delays affected both eastbound and westbound trains, the railroad said.
