Modified service into Penn Station to continue for 'forseeable future' after derailment

Posted on April 5, 2017

NEW YORK — Modified train service into and out of Penn Station continued on Wednesday and will persist "for the foreseeable future" as the result of a minor derailment Monday morning, NJ Advance Media reports.

NJ Transit made a number of service adjustments for the Wednesday commute involving train, bus, and ferry service, while train service continued to operate on a holiday schedule along the Northeast Corridor and Central Coast lines into and out of Penn Station. The modified service will likely be in effect at least through the close of the service day Thursday, NJ Transit officials said.

Amtrak officials said the derailment of the NJ Transit train damaged a switching machine, leaving just 13 out of 21 tracks in service. Service won't be fully restored until the repairs are completed, with Amtrak officials adding that it was not known when the repairs would be finished. For the full story, click here.
