NEW YORK — The Long Island Rail Road is set to restore full service today for several trains that have been cancelled, curtailed, or rerouted, some since January, with the completion of track work at several sites, including New York’s Penn Station.

Newsday reports that eight morning trains and five evening trains have had their regular schedules, affecting service on the Ronkonkoma, Babylon, Port Washington, Montauk, Long Beach, and Hempstead branches.

LIRR president Phillip Eng told the paper the return to regular schedules was great news for customers, adding, “"I thank our customers for their patience throughout the last several months. As Amtrak progresses their continuing renewal work at Penn, we will closely coordinate to ensure that we can minimize any future disruptions to our LIRR customers." 

A full list of the changes is available online.
