Train derails at NYC's Penn Station; no injuries reported


05 April, 2017

"I get to Hoboken and I can't even get to the PATH platform", one man told 1010 WINS' Glenn Schuck.

"Amtrak may not have the money to fix its problems but NJ Transit as a concerned tenant could", said Lackawanna Coalition Vice Chair Steve Thorpe. Customers can take the 7:29 a.m. train from Babylon due into Atlantic Terminal at 8:43 a.m. Change at Jamaica for service to Penn Station.

Typically, the LIRR has use of Tracks 13 through 21, but the MTA says the LIRR will primarily operate out of Tracks 17 through 21 on Tuesday evening.

"I've always done the pomp and circumstance of opening day, where you get to see the wreath come out, the Shea family comes out, you get to see the first pitch", Fleming said.

"If they would have lost, that would have been just the cherry on top", he said. MidTown Direct trains are being diverted to Hoboken. Director Santoro says it's still too soon to say when the system will return to normal scheduling.

NJ Transit said the organizations buses would cross-honor tickets, along with the PATH and private bus carriers.

Customers should expect delays in and out of Penn Station up to 60 minutes during rush hours.

Three cars on a NJ Transit train carrying 1,200 passengers derailed at Penn Station during rush hour Monday morning, injuring five people and causing massive delays.

Cell phone video showed the problem train still in the tunnel into the evening Monday. Service can not resume on those tracks until the repairs are made. "We all dwell in that same place and travel over that same track".

It's the second time in about two weeks that a New Jersey Transit train derailed at NY Penn Station.

Now, Phillips is calling for Amtrak to conduct an investigation. I didn't get to cheer C├ęspedes when they introduced him. Delays and crowding conditions are expected.
