NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say the Long Island Rail Road is running on or close to schedule after a derailment near the Jamaica station.
The railroad said two cars of an eastbound train derailed just east of Jamaica Friday night.
No injuries were reported, but the derailment at about 9:30 p.m. stranded hundreds of passengers and caused delays throughout the system.
The railroad says all service was restored by Saturday morning. The cause of the derailment is under investigation.
Jamaica is a major hub for the LIRR, the nation’s busiest commuter railroad that carries an average of more than 300,000 riders each weekday.
