LIRR: Ronkonkoma, Montauk branches back in full service

Service has been fully restored on two branches of the Long Island Rail Road Monday morning after earlier suspensions, the LIRR said.

The overnight service suspension in both directions on the Ronkonkoma Branch, between Farmingdale and Ronkonkoma, was “due to downed power lines on the tracks near Pinelawn” station, the LIRR said in a service notice on its website.

The LIRR later lifted the suspension, reporting “good service” on the Ronkonkoma Branch as of 7:45 a.m., according to the website.

The service suspension on the Montauk line, between Speonk and Montauk, was “due to power lines and trees downed by high winds,” the railroad said on its website.

That suspension was lifted as of 8:15 a.m., according to the LIRR website, but the Montauk line was experiencing unspecified delays.

The LIRR had encouraged commuters on the Ronkonkoma line to use alternate branches, “including Port Jefferson, Babylon and Montauk trains.”

The railroad did not provide other details.
