Downed wire slowing trains in NJ

    Morning, feed readers.

    Hope you enjoyed the weekend, ’cause if you take Amtrak, you’re starting the week with a headache:

    A downed wire is slowing Amtrak and commuter trains along the Northeast Corridor between Trenton and New York City.

    Amtrak spokesman Steve Kulm says an NJ Transit train took the wire down at Trenton Station around 5:20 a.m. Monday. Kulm says Amtrak trains are running up to 30 minutes late.

    NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says NJ Transit’s Northeast Corridor trains out of Trenton are running up to 30 minutes behind schedule. North Jersey Coast Line and trains that come out of Jersey Avenue are not affected.

    Crews are working to clear the wire off two tracks.
