HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY (PIX11)- Hoboken has taken another step in recovering from super storm Sandy.

Light rail trains are now up and running once again.

New schedules will be printed, posted and made available at all New Jersey Transit rail stations.

Starting on Sunday, 21 trains on the Morris & Essex, Montclair-Booton, and Bergen County lines were restored.

As well as nearly all rush hour service to Hoboken from the Gladstone and Morristown lines will be up and running.

Full restoration evening peak outbound service from Hoboken will also be restored.

The storm flooded out a substation, causing only diesel trains to run.

New Jersey transit says this brings rail service back to 97-percent of its pre-sandy level.

    There hasn't been a problem with light rail. The electric trains not running we're those running to NJ Transit's Hoboken Erie Lacawananna terminal which operates full length trains of the kind you would see running out of NY Penn Station. The lines impacted include the Morris & Essex and Bergen/Main, not light rail. Light rail has been running all along. There is a big difference between light rail and the "regular trains" and the areas they serve.
