Long Island Rail Road service across Long Island was delayed and canceled last week after the derailment of a New Jersey Transit train near Penn Station. The derailment meant that the LIRR would share tracks 15 and 16 with NJT and Amtrak.
The delays came just one week after the LIRR experienced delays due to multiple lightning strikes on the Main Line and the Babylon/Montauk branches.
The service disruptions have caused many complaints amongst frustrated commuters.
