BROOKLYN - The R train is back on track, running between Brooklyn and Manhattan for the first time since Superstorm Sandy.

The storm flooded the Montague Street tunnel with 27 million gallons of salt water and debris, shutting down the busy subway line. MTA workers had to pump out the water and then repair damaged electrical components.

Straphangers who use the R train have had to transfer in Downtown Brooklyn for the past two months in order to get out of the borough.
