ALERT!

Recommended Posts

MTA Long Island Rail Road

 

Service Alert

 

Sunday, July 27, 2008 7:56 PM

 

Montauk Branch Customers:

There are 1-1/2 to 2 hour delays on Montauk Branch westbound trains because of a LIPA power problem affecting the LIRR's signal system between Patchogue and Speonk.

 

Customers are also advised that many crossing gates are in the down position, due to local power outages. As a result, Montauk Branch trains are operating at 15 miles per hour.

 

 

 

...On a side note, wow that sucks.

It must be a mess. It didn't seem that bad here in Nassau as far as the storms go. The 3:37pm and 5:39pm out of MTK which are chaotic enough without problems on a Sunday must be a mess. They also have wires down at Flying Point Road near the merge in Southampton, gonna be making a mess of traffic as well.

Must've been a cool storm to see, too bad I missed the action (being in Nassau & all).

From what i know the storm was bad enough that the FAA issued a ground stop for the entire eastern coast. I got some footage of the system as it passed through my area on its way to NYC area.

They interviewed some woman on the news who said she had to stand on a train from the Hamptons for 4 1/2 hours. Yes...stand! Those trains get packed.

They run diesel freight along the LIRR row's, may have been one of those.

yeah, but the sound was coming from the direction of the line that runs though Yanphank, and it didn't sound like the horn of a diesel freight
