(PIX11) — Long Island Rail Road expects regular Monday morning rush hour service following efforts by crews to re-rail a non-passenger train in the Westside Yard, officials said.

MTA posted an alert shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday saying customers should anticipate canceled and diverted trains as well as delays during the morning rush hour to start the work week.

But at about 3:30 a.m., LIRR said morning rush hour service should be back to normal.

The agency said crews worked throughout the night and overnight to re-rail the derailed cars.
