LIRR Nightmare: Power Problem Strands Trains in Tunnels, Delays Pile Up

Thousands of LIRR riders experienced crippling delays and cancellations on their way to New York's Penn Station Tuesday after a power problem in one of the East River tunnels stranded multiple trains and forced diversions, the MTA said.

The MTA first warned riders about the issue around 7:45 a.m., and the problem escalated rapidly as the height of the morning rush got underway. By 9 a.m. trains were running up to an hour late, and LIRR was explicitly blaming problems with Amtrak's already beleaguered infrastructure.
