The electronic signage and the public address announcements at Long Island Rail Road stations have been restored, after the system went down late Sunday night, a railroad official said Monday.
The system, which provides riders with train information, stopped working at nearly all stations at about 10 p.m. Sunday, spokesman Sam Zambuto said. He said the information service was restored 5:30 a.m.
Officials could not immediately explain why the system crashed or how long it was out of service. The railroad sent out an e-mail alert to riders Monday morning at 6 a.m. saying: "LIRR's public address and electronic signage system is working again at all stations."
The railroad noted that elevators remain out of service at two stations and an escalator is out of service at one other in the system Monday.
The non-working elevators are at the east end of the Auburndale station platform and at the east end of the station building servicing Platform A at Lynbrook. The out-of-service escalator is at Bellmore.
It was not clear when those will be back in service.
