NEW YORK (AP) - Transit officials say Staten Island Railway service is back to normal a day after a train car derailed.

There were no injuries reported in the incident, which occurred around 2 p.m. Thursday at the St. George terminal.

About 90 riders were aboard the train, eight of them in the derailed car. The Fire Department helped them get off the train.

The 14-mile railroad is a transit backbone on Staten Island. The railway averages about 16,000 people on a weekday.

Another Staten Island Railway car derailed May 29 at the Tottenville station, after hitting a block that stops trains from rolling off the rails at a terminus. There were no passengers. The engineer and conductor suffered minor injuries.
