NJ Transit and Amtrak are running fewer trains than usual today, a day after a train derailment shut down train service for several hours.
Many commuters faced crowded train terminals and delays of two hours or more on Tuesday morning. Adding to commuters’ headaches, PATH service from Hoboken to New York was suspended and there were delays between Jersey City in New York Tuesday morning due to track issues. Direct service from New York to Hoboken resumed around noon.
An NJ Transit train derailed around 9 a.m. Monday as it pulled into Penn Station. It was the second derailment in the station in less than two weeks. On the morning of March 24, an Amtrak train derailed in the same area near the tunnel that leads under the Hudson River to New Jersey.
The Federal Railroad Administration is investigating the Monday incident.
Several tracks at Penn Station were still closed on Tuesday morning. The Northeast Corridor is running on a holiday schedule and several NJ Transit trains were canceled Tuesday.
