Updated: Jan 23 at 6:21 p.m. – Amtrak and NJ Transit say trains are running on the Northeast Corridor. Service was halted between Trenton and New York City for several hours after power lines were knocked down by strong winds. Rail offices say passengers should expect delays this evening because all trains were running at reduced speeds.
Amtrak has suspended service for Northeast Regional and Acela Express trains traveling in New Jersey.
That’s because commercial power lines have come down in area near Linden. Amtrak says efforts are under way to clear area and restore service as soon as possible.
The issue has also spurred New Jersey Transit to suspend rail service on the Northeast Corridor in both directions between New York’s Penn Station and Trenton and on the North Jersey Coast Line between Penn Station and Long Branch.
The suspensions are the latest issue facing the agency as stormy weather hits New Jersey on Monday.
The weather has caused delays on NJ Transit lines and forced the suspension of Newark Liberty International Airport’s AirTrain service. Buses are shuttling passengers between parking lots and Newark airport terminals.
