Customers of the Long Island Rail Road reportedly dealt with more delays and service interruptions last year than they did in several previous years.

According to Newsday, the LIRR's operating report for 2010 shows the railroad had its worst on-time record since 2005.

Contributing factors included bad weather and the fire at the Jamaica Station signal tower in August.

The railroad's best on-time performance was in 2009.
