NJ Transit suspends service at Penn Station as derailment snarls morning commute

NJ Transit suspends service at Penn Station as derailment snarls morning commute

An NJ Transit derailment at Penn Station caused massive delays getting into the city, disrupting the commute for many - including Mets fans.

MidTOWN Direct trains will continue to operate in and out of Hoboken Terminal where customers can access PATH and NJ TRANSIT bus service.

Passengers on the train told NBC they felt a slight jolt, but no crash just before the train pulled into Penn Station.

The MTA says at least 10 morning rush trains on the Long Island Rail Road have been canceled. Service was affected on the LIRR, NJ Transit and Amtrak. "As we re-rail we want to make sure we don't cause other damage", Naparstek said, adding that the cars were taken to the Sunnyside Yard in Queens for further examination. No serious injuries were reported in the second derailment at the busy Manhattan hub in 11 days.

Fleming, a court clerk who also runs a sports blog, said the best way to fix the troubled transit system is to hire a private firm to run it. It's the second train derailment in as many weeks and today, the state agency was unable to commit to a timeline for fix.

The lights dimmed and the air was stifling; passengers got conflicting directions as they were herded back-and-forth inside the train, she said. Midtown Direct trains were diverted to Hoboken, N.J. Amtrak said Acela Express and Northeast Regional service between Newark and NY would be subject to delays and that Keystone Service might be modified.
