Buses Replace Trains on Montauk Branch between Speonk & Babylon over Weekend

Published on : Wednesday, November 9, 2016

MTA RailBus service will replace trains on the Montauk Branch between Speonk and Babylon over the weekend of November 12 and November 13 as the Long Island Rail Road replaces concrete ties in the single track area between those stations.


Because of the busing program, customers should allow for extra travel time and carefully consult the revised Montauk Branch Timetable for November 12-13 before heading out. The single track between Speonk and Babylon will be taken out of service at 12:05 a.m. on Saturday, November 12 and returned to service by 1:46 a.m. on Monday, November 14, in plenty of time for the morning rush.


It is all part of the LIRR’s annual State of Good Repair Program – the regularly scheduled replacement of track, switch and signal infrastructure being carried out at a cost of $60 million in 2016. Over the last decade, the LIRR has invested more than $573 million in such upgrades system wide.


Here is a rundown of key service changes on the Montauk and Babylon branches scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, November 12 & Sunday, November 13:
