Long Island Rail Road travelers heading to and from New York are facing massive delays Wednesday morning after a non-passenger equipment train derailed near Jamaica Station in Queens.
The train stalled near the major hub around 4:33 a.m., according to LIRR’s Twitter.
Service was temporarily suspended in both directions, but the Port Washington line was not affected.
Limited westbound service into the city was restored around 5:43 a.m., the LIRR said, but commuters “should expect delays and cancellations during the a.m. rush,” the MTA said.
NYC Transit is cross-honoring LIRR tickets at Penn Station, Jamaica Station, Hunterspoint Avenue and Atlantic Terminal.
Commuters are encouraged to consider alternate routes and allow for additional travel time.
