LIRR service was restored late Tuesday after a temporary suspension to and from both Penn Station and Atlantic Terminal, after a train hit and killed a person east of the Queens Village station, officials said.
Delays were still averaging an hour by 7:30 p.m. because of the earlier service suspension.
Salvatore Arena, a spokesman for the Long Island Rail Road, said the train involved was the westbound 4:48 p.m. from Ronkonkoma, scheduled to arrive at Penn Station at 6:08 p.m.
Officials did not have more details on the precise location of impact, and the investigation was ongoing.
Service was further complicated by a signal problem at Jamaica Station.
The Port Washington Branch was not affected: it is the only one of the LIRR’s 11 branches that does not go through Jamaica.
Fire departments were on the scene.
The victim has not been identified.
