LIRR says train service has been restored between Jamaica & Hicksville. The first W/B train to operate through is the 12:04PM train from Huntington to Penn, which was being held at Hicksville. Service was suspended earlier due to a non-passenger train striking an unauthorized person on the track in New Hyde Park.
