The Long Island Rail Road is operating on or close to scheduled Tuesday after struggling to resume service following Saturday's blizzard.

The railroad on its Twitter account said the train from Ronkonkoma due at Penn Station at 5:39 p.m. was running at 10 minutes late due to a late train. A train from Port Jefferson due at Jamaica at 5:39 p.m. was running 10 minutes late due to a late eastbound train in single-track territory, the LIRR said on its Twitter account.

Earlier Tuesday, other delays and snafus arose after midnight. The LIRR had said it was aiming for regular service Tuesday morning, after a barrage of service disruptions Monday morning, some storm-related, including an hourlong suspension of service in and out of Penn Station at the height of the rush.

In a statement, LIRR president Phillip Eng attributed some disruptions Monday to "residual weather issues and an Amtrak switch failure."

The LIRR’s issues continued through the Monday evening rush, with several delays of up to 40 minutes, including on the Port Jefferson and Ronkonkoma branches.
