Amtrak says Penn Station tracks are fixed; customers should expect residual delays

Amtrak says it has restored service on derailment-damaged tracks at New York’s Penn Station — but commuters on New Jersey Transit and the Long Island Rail Road have been urged to allow for extra travel time.

The LIRR canceled 10 trains into Manhattan for Friday’s morning rush hour and terminated four others at stations in Queens because Amtrak crews had not finished track work by 4 a.m., as promised.

Amtrak said at 7:30 a.m. that testing and inspections were completed. However, New Jersey Transit said there was still some work being done and its customers “may experience some delays.”

Eight of Penn Station’s 21 tracks went out of service Monday when an NJ Transit train derailed. Amtrak owns and maintains tracks used by the other railroads at Penn Station.
