Train Service Resumes at Penn Station

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Amtrak says service in and out of Penn Station has been restored. Service was halted earlier this morning due to a power outage.

According to the Associated Press a low voltage problem near North Bergen forced the railroad to halt trains into and out of New York's Penn Station around 8:45 a.m. Wednesday.

A statement from Amtrak says that service on the Acela Express and Northeast Regional trains to Boston and Empire Service to Albany were affected. It is not clear whether the outage was weather related. Amtrak says the cause of the disruption is under investigation. 

NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line and Midtown Direct trains into and out of New York are still stuck.
PATH trains and Port Authority buses are honoring NJ Transit rail passes.
