Delays cleared on LIRR's Montauk line

Signal trouble that caused delays of more than 40 minutes Wednesday morning on the Montauk branch of the Long Island Rail Road has been addressed, officials said.

As of 9 a.m., the MTA website reported that service is "good" on the branch.

But, the railroad said that on the Port Jefferson line the 8:04 a.m. train from Huntington, scheduled to arrive at Penn Station at 9:08 a.m., was operating 18 minutes late from Huntington because of equipment trouble before departure.

Earlier, at least three trains on the Montauk branch were affected by that signal trouble.

The 5:08 a.m. train from Speonk to Penn Station operated 39 minutes late east of Sayville because of signal trouble.

The 5:30 a.m. train from Speonk, due in Long Island City at 7:34 a.m., operated 42 minutes late, the website said.

The 6:21 a.m. train from Speonk, due in Penn Station at 8:23 a.m., operated 12 minutes late east of Mastic-Shirley -- also because of signal trouble.

It was not immediately clear what caused the problems.
