Trains stall at Penn Station, causing delays


Major repairs works, dubbed the "Summer of Hell", started at Penn Station this week to address critical repairs.

The trouble began when a train from Miami carrying 165 people stalled as it entered Penn Station about 11:50 a.m.

The Amtrak train disabled in the Hudson River Tunnel because of an overhead power issue, officials said. And according to Amtrak, the track repairs that it's now administering in the tunnels between ny and New Jersey are going better than expected, too. Work also is being done on switch #89 which was the site of a July 6 derailment of an NJ Transit train, he said.

Until the stalled train is moved to the station, NJ Transit and Amtrak trains between NY and New Jersey will be delayed, officials said.

Amtrak travel between NY and New Jersey was briefly suspended, but had resumed on Amtrak rails by 1:15 p.m.

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.
