Amtrak Northeast Corridor, SEPTA Service Between Philadelphia and Trenton Resumes

trenton train stationAmtrak Northeast Corridor service between New York and Philadelphia and SEPTA service between Trenton and Philadelphia resumed this morning, Monday, May 18.

Northeast corridor services for Amtrak began again with the 5:30 a.m. train from New York and the 5:53 train from Philadelphia.

The Princeton Dinky Shuttle is temporarily suspended due to mechanical problems. Substitute buses are replacing the shuttle for Monday, May 18.

Amtrak President and CEO Joe Boardman issued a statement about the restoration of service late Sunday night. Service had been suspended since last Tuesday night when an Amtrak train that was traveling at more than 100 miles per hour on a sharp bend derailed north of Philadelphia. Eight people were killed and more than 200 people were injured.

“At Amtrak, the safety of our passengers and crew remains our number one priority. Since the tragic derailment, Amtrak staff and crew have been working around the clock to repair the infrastructure necessary to restore service for all the passengers who travel along the Northeast Corridor,” Boardman said.

“Our repairs have been made with the utmost care and emphasis on safety, including complete compliance with Federal Railroad Administration directives,” Boardman said. “Although service along the Northeast Corridor will begin again tomorrow, the derailment of Northeast Regional Train 188 is a tragedy that we at Amtrak will continue to mourn and are dedicated to learning from.”
