NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Long Island Rail Road is operating on a limited schedule to and from Brooklyn Friday morning because of a fire that damaged Con Ed's power feed to a substation.

NYC Transit is cross-honoring LIRR tickets at 34th Street and Atlantic Terminal for the 2 and 3 trains. 

The LIRR canceled a few trains and there were delays averaging 10-15 minutes between Jamaica and Atlantic due to the power problems, which were already responsible for a reduction in service to Atlantic. LIRR is working with Con Ed as they work to address the problem. 

As an alternative, westbound customers can take LIRR service to Penn Station and then transfer to 2/3 subway service into Atlantic Terminal.

Eastbound customers can take the 2/3 subway from Atlantic Terminal to Penn, and transfer to LIRR train service.
