Disabled Amtrak train causing headaches at Penn Station

Until the stalled train is moved to the station, NJ Transit and Amtrak trains between NY and New Jersey will be delayed, officials said.

Amtrak officials said two rescue crews were dispatched to Penn Station around 1 p.m.

Amtrak spokesman Mike Tolbert said earlier Saturday that train service in or out of the city was halted as crews investigated overhead power issues.

A NJ Transit train also derailed at Penn Station on July 6. However, the disabled trains resulted in delays on other trains between NY and New Jersey.

No one was injured during the incident and the overhead power was restored.

That was the third NJ Transit derailment at the station since March. The Wall Street Journalreports that the national rail agency's COO, Scot Naparstek, said that work for the first week is being completed right on time.

For several hundred thousand commuters on the Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit - as well as Amtrak passengers who ride between Boston and Washington, D.C. - that means fewer trains during peak periods, the result of track closures to accommodate the repairs. The second phase runs from August 4 through August 28. The Path will absorb extra traffic due to the closing of tracks at Penn Station.
