Normal service returned to the Long Island Railroad Monday after a week of disruptions due to a derailed freight train.

But a short time later, service was suspended in both directions between Port Washington and Great Neck because of a broken rail west of Port Washington Station. It was restored by approximately 7:30 a.m.

The railroad also is adding trains Monday afternoon due to the Passover observance, which begins at sunset.

Salvatore Arena told Newsday "We're on target. Everything should be back to normal" on Monday.

The derailment occurred last Monday west of Jamaica, Queens.

    A New Jersey Transit commuter train that became disabled just outside the Hudson River tunnel in Manhattan on Tuesday has been removed. 1,000 passengers were on board when the Northeast Corridor train became stuck, according to NJ Transit officials. A rescue train was attached to the disabled train and removed to Penn Station about an hour behind schedule. It is not clear what caused the mechanical problem. There are residual delays on NJT trains into and out of Penn Station.

    Imagine a segregated airline flight: one section for children and one section for adults only. This is the vision of entrepreneur Richard Branson, the president of Virgin Atlantic.
