Amtrak and NJTransit trains disrupted by overhead power line problems coming into Penn Station; PATH cross-honoring
Service Disruption: Trains traveling between New York (NYP) and North Phiadelphia (PHN) are now stopped due to overhead power issues. We will update as more information becomes available.— Amtrak Northeast (@AmtrakNECAlerts) June 19, 2019
NJ TRANSIT Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line, and Midtown Direct rail service is suspended in both directions due to Amtrak overhead wire problems. Midtown Direct service is being diverted to Hoboken.— NJ TRANSIT (@NJTRANSIT) June 19, 2019
Update: As of 11:20am, NJTransit trains have resumed, but delays will persist. Expect overhead wire problems throughout the summer as the heat causes the cables to sag.
Amtrak reports delays of about 1 hour for trains that were scheduled into Penn Station, including some stopped south of New Brunswick / Metropark in New Jersey and others still held in Philadelphia as fire officials inspect the overhead power lines.
