Long Island Rail Road commuters caught another tough break Thursday morning when a train broke down west of Jamaica, causing westbound delays on all branches, the railroad said.

Crews were moved the disabled train to Jamaica, but the railroad didn’t say what caused the train to break down.

There were up to hour-long delays during rush hour, but service was restored to mostly normal before noon, although there were still some lingering delays.
