LIRR: On or close in, out of Penn Station after delays

The LIRR said it was operating on or close to schedule into and out of Penn Station after earlier delays and cancellations during Tuesday’s morning commute because of a track condition in one of the East River tunnels.

Customers were alerted to the track issue in emails and by social media at about 7 a.m.; the Long Island Rail Road said customers also should expect some trains being diverted to Atlantic Terminal and others being canceled at Jamaica station.

Shortly after 9 a.m. the railroad said it was on or close.

Earlier, the LIRR had said residual delays in and out of Penn Station were averaging 10 minutes because of the track condition.
