MANHATTAN— Train service in and out of Penn Station was suspended Sunday due to an Amtrak power outage.
Path is accepting NJT Rail passes/tickets at Newark Penn Station and 33rd St New York.
The power outage happened around 5:15 p.m, officials said. As of about 5:55 p.m., the power had already been restored in all but two tracks. Power was back on all tracks by 7 p.m.
"There is a power issue on the tracks of New York Penn Station, impacting all trains in and out of the station due to a signal issue," an Amtrak spokesperson said. "We are currently working to resolve the issue."
One passenger said he'd been stuck on a train with no power for a half hour "getting very hot and uncomfortable."
Midtown direct trains from NJ Transit are currently being diverted to Hoboken.
