Ronkonkoma, NY (MorichesDaily) – The Long Island Rail Road reported a broken down non-passenger train this morning that was causing delays for some commuters this morning.
The disabled train was broken down just west of the Jamaica station.
An LIRR spokesperson says the broken down non-passenger train triggered delays for passengers heading westbound.
At least a dozen trains were impacted by the delays.
LIRR said it was not immediately clear what caused the train to become disabled, but officials said an engine later moved the train to a yard.
Service to Kew Gardens, Forest Hills and Woodside was affected during the incident — trains bypassing Kew Gardens and Forest Hills; Woodside accessible only by Port Washington trains — but officials later said that service was restored.
New York City Transit has cross-honored fares on the E and 7 subway lines.
