The photo was snapped at the Island Park Train Station Monday evening by Long Beach resident Paul Read after a bus broke down on the Long Island Rail Road tracks, blocking an eastbound train to Long Beach.
According to Read, riders on the bus were transferred to another bus. Meanwhile, commuters on the train, for the most part, had to find their own ways home.
"Quite a few of us tried to push the bus off of the tracks but it would not move," Read said. "Another bus loaded with passengers tried to push the bus but again it would not move. The delays ended up being somewhere between 45 minutes to an hour before service was restored."
"My wife and I ended up walking home over the bridge and managed to get a few pictures while crossing," he added.
