The LIRR is operating on or close to schedule systemwide after earlier delays and cancellations due to a damaged third rail west of Jamaica, the railroad said.

The railroad made the latest announcement before 10 a.m. .

Travelers headed west — except for the Port Washington Branch — had been experiencing delays even after the earlier problem with the third rail had been repaired, the railroad had said at about 8:10 a.m.

Earlier, the railroad had said one train from Huntington/Port Jefferson was canceled, while three trains were canceled from the Ronkonkoma branch, as well as from the Babylon Branch.
