LIRR train service altered for Monday morning rush following train derailment

NEW YORK — Train service on several Long Island Rail Road lines will be cancelled or partially cancelled Monday morning following a derailment over the weekend, MTA officials said.

A train that was not in passenger service partially derailed as it was moving through West Side Yard on Saturday, causing a worker to suffer back pain, according to the MTA.

The incident caused some damage to tracks that allow trains to travel to and from the yard, the MTA said.

While the issues are being dealt with and an investigation into the partial derailment is underway, six branches will be impacted.

Delays and cancellations are expected on the Babylon, Hempstead, Port Washington, Ronkonkoma, Far Rockaway and Oyster Bay branches. Riders can check the MTA's website and LIRR's Twitter account for specific changes.

In addition to troubles caused by the partial derailment, the LIRR's summer schedule took effect over the weekend. Click here for more information on the schedule in place through September.
