Service restored after disabled track equipment causes delays on NJ Transit, Amtrak, LIRR

NEW YORK — All equipment has been cleared and service has resumed after a earlier derailment of rail maintenance equipment in the North Tube of the Hudson River Tunnel caused delays during the Friday morning commute.

No injuries were reported, according to an Amtrak spokesperson.

As of 10:30 a.m., all equipment had been cleared out of the Tunnel and operations and service has resumed.

NJ Transit, and Amtrak trains were subject to up to 60-minute delays in and out of Penn Station New York

All trains were single tracking, using the South Tube, affecting all Amtrak and commuter trains traveling in and out of the station, an Amtrak spokesperson said.

NJ Transit rail tickets and passes were temporarily cross-honored by the PATH, NJT Bus and private carrier buses.

To alleviate congestion, NYC Transit also is cross-honored LIRR tickets at the Jamaica, Penn Station, Kew Gardens, Forest Hills, Woodside and Flushing-Main Street train stations.
