LIRR service has been restored between Queens and Penn Station following suspensions caused by a third-rail problem in one of the East River tunnels.

Manhattan-bound service was suspended from Jamaica and Woodside to Penn Station about 4 p.m. Service resumed shortly after 6 p.m.

NYC Transit was cross-honoring fares on the subway to accommodate passengers.
