NEW YORK — Long Island Rail Road service has been restored Monday night after being temporarily suspended due to a switch problem at Penn Station.

Switch problems with Amtrak canceled eastbound trains on multiple LIRR branches during the evening rush hour.  All westbound trains were canceled at one point.

By 10 p.m., service had resumed to a normal schedule.

The switch problems are not expected to impact the morning commute.
