The Long Island Rail Road has restored full service on the Ronkonkoma Branch after a train struck a person on the tracks east of Farmingdale station early Monday, causing a rush-hour suspension of all service on the branch.

The railroad had restored partial service by using trains originating and terminating at Farmingdale and had advised customers to use the Babylon and Port Jefferson branches instead.

Details of the incident causing all the delays were still emerging Monday. The railroad did not immediately respond to inquires about whether or not the incident involved a fatality.

Numerous trains were delayed or canceled, the railroad said. Long delays continue on the branch, the LIRR said, including these:

The 7:10 a.m. train from Ronkonkoma to Grand Central is operating 1 hour and 40 minutes late.

The 8:55 a.m. train from Ronkonkoma to Penn Station is operating 10-15 minutes late.

The 9:50 a.m. train from Ronkonkoma to Penn Station is operating 10-15 minutes late.

The 8:32 a.m. train from Penn Station to Ronkonkoma is operating 35-40 minutes late.

The 8:58 a.m. train from Grand Central to Ronkonkoma is operating 15-20 minutes late.
