LIRR Adds 13 Trains for Christmas Eve

Thirteen extra eastbound Long Island Rail Road trains will leave from Penn Station on Wednesday afternoon to accommodate riders leaving work early to celebrate Christmas Eve.

The added trains include six on the Babylon Branch, four of the Port Jefferson Branch, two on the Ronkonkoma Branch and one on the Far Rockaway Branch, all of which run between 12:46 p.m. and 3:48 p.m.

As a result, the 5:59 p.m. from Penn Station to Babylon will be canceled and combined with the 6:05 p.m. express to Merrick, which then makes local stops to Babylon.

The LIRR will operate on a holiday schedule on Christmas day.
