Normal rush hour expected after LIRR derailment

The morning after two trains collided at a switching area at Jamaica Station causing a massive disruption in service throughout the system, the Long Island Rail Road is operating on or close to schedule Friday, a railroad official said.

 

Which is good news for commuters, who suffered through endless evening rush-hour delays Thursday, hours after the trains collided -- and one derailed -- in Jamaica.

 

A crane lifted the derailed train back onto the tracks and it was towed to a repair facility shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday. Railroad spokesman Joe Calderone said scores of workers were working overnight to repair tracks that were damaged in the accident. Railroad officials have not yet detailed the extent of that damage.
