LIRR: On or close after broken rail causes delays, cancellations

The Long Island Rail Road issued a morning rush service advisory because of a broken rail in one of the East River tunnels.

The LIRR is operating on or close to schedule into Penn Station following repairs to a broken rail in one of Amtrak’s East River tunnels that caused some delays, cancellations and diversions during the Monday morning commute.

Shortly after 8 a.m. an alert said the LIRR was experiencing westbound delays up to 10 minutes into Penn Station after the broken rail.

At about 9:15 a.m. LIRR spokesman Chris McKniff said the work had been completed.

“The repairs have been done and the trains are moving on or close to schedule,” McKniff said.
