Amtrak NJ service to resume after Irene flooding

    Amtrak says it will resume some train service between Philadelphia and New York City on Wednesday after flooding caused by Hurricane Irene.

    Service was suspended because of flooding at the Trenton, N.J., station.

    The rail service says repairs have been made but there will be delays when trains start running again.

    New Jersey Transit is operational in Trenton, too, but rail passengers should expect delays.

    NJ Transit says Northeast Corridor trains are subject to delays up to 45 minutes, and North Jersey Coast Line trains can be up to 20 minutes late.

    SEPTA says its West Trenton line may experience delays of up to 25 minutes, and that Trenton line service begins and terminates at Levittown station.
