NJ Transit faces delays

    Update:

    NJ Transit’s back in business, folks. Trains are running again in and out of New York City’s Penn Station.

    Workers have repaired the damage caused Tuesday after two cars of a New Jersey-bound train derailed in a Hudson River tunnel near Penn Station.

    Original Post:

    It’s not starting out as a good morning for New Jersey Transit rail riders.

    Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line and Midtown Direct trains are operating up to 30 minutes behind schedule in and out of New York City.

    NJ Transit spokeswoman Penny Bassett-Hackett says that’s because trains can only use one track in and out of the city. Workers have been repairing damage caused after two cars of a Trenton-bound train derailed in the Hudson River tunnel on Tuesday. No one was injured in the derailment.

    Expect delays and plan accordingly.
