NEW YORK (AP) — The Long Island Rail Road says service is back on track after delays caused by vandals who stripped copper wire from an electrical connection in Queens.
LIRR spokesman Sal Arena sais 43 trains were delayed Friday morning by up to 20 minutes.
He said the main cause was the theft of copper wire from a rail connection between the Woodside and Sunnyside stations.
The vandalism was discovered at 5:30 a.m. Arena says about 144 feet of copper were stolen.
Service was back to normal by 10:30 a.m. The railroad says repairs will be made in time for the evening rush hour.
