BROOKLYN — Subway service was temporarily disrupted Thursday morning after a train derailment in Brooklyn, the FDNY and MTA said.

According to the FDNY the report came in around 4:10 a.m. for a "minor train derailment" near the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station.

There were no injuries reported but the incident resulted in many delays and service changes along the D, N, Q and R subway lines.

Just after 8 a.m. the MTA tweeted that there were residual delays on the D, N and R lines, and that the D and N service was "fully operational," while warning riders to expect longer waits as trains get back on schedule.

The MTA said on Twitter at 7:30 a.m. that trains along the effected lines were proceeding but with extensive delays in both directions.

Earlier there was "limited service" on those lines between Brooklyn and Manhattan while the FDNY investigated.

Riders were initially instructed by the MTA to consider using 2, 3, 4 or 5 train service between Manhattan and Brooklyn.
