Trains headed into Penn station disabled due to power issues

Trains headed into Penn station disabled due to power issues

It led to the latest series of commuting delays in and out of New York Penn Station.

"We always have two on standby", the spokesman said of the rescue trains.

Later Saturday around 4:35 p.m., a New Jersey Transit train became disabled at the same location as the earlier incidents because of overhead power issues.

Amtrak and New Jersey Transit service on the Northeast Corridor in and out of New York Penn Station resumed Saturday after brief delays, but officials warned additional delays are possible.

Naparstek said there were no other problems such as overhead wire failures in tunnels during the week that could have caused delays, but he cautioned it's unrealistic to assume those won't crop up during the summer.

Amtrak travel between NY and New Jersey was briefly suspended, but had resumed on Amtrak rails by 1:15 p.m. There were no injuries reported, and power was again restored, an Amtrak spokesman said.

There was a power outage inside the tunnel, but Amtrak said that was quickly resolved and the Amtrak train was towed safely back to Penn Station.

Amtrak officials said two rescue crews were dispatched to Penn Station around 1 p.m.

A NJ Transit train also derailed at Penn Station on July 6. Some NJ Transit rail lines are being diverted to Hoboken during morning and afternoon peak periods.

Tolbert says there's no indication that this summer's track fix work at the nation's busiest rail station played a part in the delay.

The fix work at Penn Station has forced several tracks to be closed at a time.
