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.

For additional information, visit LIRR’s website or call the LIRR’s Customer Service Center by calling 511.

Timothy Bolger is the Editor in Chief of the Long Island Press who’s been working to uncover unreported stories since shortly after it launched in 2003. When he’s not editing, getting hassled by The Man or fielding cold calls to the newsroom, he covers crime, general interest and political news in addition to reporting longer, sometimes investigative features. He won’t be happy until everyone is as pissed off as he is about how screwed up Lawn Guyland is.
