Westbound Service From Jamaica and Woodside Is Curtailed; Customers Should Allow Extra Travel Time

Published on : Tuesday, April 4, 2017

MTA RailBecause of an NJ TRANSIT derailment at Penn Station this morning and continuing track repairs, the Long Island Rail Road needs to cancel 18 trains from Penn Station between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., and have 8 others originate at Atlantic Terminal, Brooklyn, or Jamaica, Queens. Normally 87 LIRR trains depart from Penn Station during this time. The cancellations are necessary to allow NJ TRANSIT and Amtrak, which runs Penn Station, the exclusive use of Tracks 13-16, which are normally shared with LIRR; the move means four of the nine Penn Station tracks used by the LIRR for the evening rush hour are not available for use as a result of the derailment.
