Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said they may have to clear snow from tracks and the third rail Friday evening.

Port Washington Branch

• The 3:40 p.m. train from Penn Station due in Great Neck at 4:15 p.m. with stops at Woodside, Flushing Main Street and then all stops to Great Neck.

Far Rockaway Branch

• The 3:48 p.m. train from Penn Station due in Far Rockaway at 4:43 p.m. running express to Locust Manor and then all stops to Far Rockaway.

The Long Island Railroad maintains a fleet of snow and ice-busting equipment designed to keep outdoor tracks clear of snow and ice during harsh winter weather. Officials added that track switches are being treated with anti-freeze, and switch heaters are being turned on to keep switches moving freely so trains can continue to be routed from one track to another.

Officials said customers may call 511, the New York State Travel Information line, for more information about possible changes to Long Island Rail Road service this weekend.
