Long Island Rail Road service was mostly back to normal for the Wednesday morning rush hour commute two days after a train that derailed in Penn Station caused widespread delays.

The only issues reported during the first normal commute since the incident was a train with equipment trouble on the Montauk Branch that ran nearly an hour late. Mid-day trains are also being replaced with buses between Locust Valley and Oyster Bay while tie replacement work is underway.

The LIRR Amtrak, and the Federal Railroad Administration are investigating the cause of the derailment, which required 500 feet of track to be replaced.
