(Updated) Amtrak service between Boston, New York restored after derailment
Amtrak travelers experienced delays on Sunday after a derailment caused service disruptions for much of the day.
Train service between New York and Boston was temporarily suspended Sunday morning because of the derailment of a freight train in Connecticut.
The Northeast Corridor service was suspended at about 5 a.m., according to a service alert by Amtrak. It was restored at about 4 p.m.
The freight train derailed in New Haven, Conn., and blocked the tracks causing the disruption in service.
“Crews are on the scene working to clear the tracks and restore service as quickly as possible,” Amtrak said in its service alert.
Service was not impacted between New York City and Washington, D.C. The Springfield shuttle is also operating as scheduled.
Passengers who paid, but did not travel during the disruption can receive a refund or voucher.
