NJ Transit train disabled at Penn Station

NJ Transit train disabled at Penn Station

A New Jersey Transit train with almost 600 people on board was briefly disabled near the tunnel outside of Penn Station on Saturday afternoon. Amtrak sent a second train out to the train, but the rescue train also became disabled.

New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it's cautiously optimistic after the first week of major repairs at Penn Station, the busiest train station in the country.

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

There were 170 people on the Amtrak train, which was travelling from Miami to NY.

An Amtrak train stalled in a Hudson River tunnel caused delays into and out of Penn Station on Saturday afternoon.

There is no word as to whether the power problems are associated with the Penn Station rehab.

Trump Hires New Lawyer Amid Russia Investigation
Homeland said Veselnitskaya first got her immigration parole letter on September 25, 2015 and it was last used in February 2016. The president has said his son did nothing wrong. "I haven't talked with Donald Trump about Russian Federation since then".

Passengers on that train were removed and exited onto Track 15. "I'd like to start by thanking the passengers of Amtrak, Long Island Rail Road, and New Jersey Transit", Amtrak Chief Operating Officer Scot Naparstek said.

Lhota says transit officials and commuters are "getting through this together".

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

Massive schedule changes are in effect at Penn Station this summer so Amtrak can fix the station's tracks and switches.

That was the third NJ Transit derailment at the station since March.

The fix work at Penn Station has forced several tracks to be closed at a time.
