There are grim times ahead for riders on the Long Island Rail Road. Come Monday, the LIRR will begin the service cutbacks ordered by the MTA.

Service to Belmont Park will be eliminated.

Also, eight trains will be canceled on the Babylon, Long Beach, Oyster Bay, Port Jefferson and Port Washington lines.

Even more cuts are due in September, all because of the MTA's massive budget deficit.
