The affects of Monday’s New Jersey Transit train derailment were still being felt during Tuesday morning’s commute at Penn Station.
There are delays and service changes on Long Island Rail Road, Amtrak and NJ Transit trains. The LIRR is also working on a broken rail near Queens Village, the agency said on Twitter.
NJ Transit also had a disabled train in an East River tunnel this morning.
Here’s what is currently happening:
Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line are running on a holiday schedule. The agency has upped bus service along those lines, and cross-honoring is in effect.
Due to the rail issues and an earlier signal problem near Central Islip, there are currently 15-minute delays on the Oyster Bay, Port Jefferson and Ronkonkoma lines. Some trains were canceled or combined due to the reduced capacity, the LIRR said.
LIRR tickets will be cross-honored on the E, 7 and 2/3 subways for customers whose trains diverted to Hunterspoint Avenue or Atlantic Terminal.
Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor is running on a modified schedule, and customers could see delays up to 60 minutes during rush hour and 30 minutes during nonrush hours on arrivals and departures at Penn Station.
Northeast Regional service also has a modified schedule between New York and Washington, D.C., and will add extra stops in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey on Tuesday.
Empire Service and Keystone Service is also running with a reduced, modified schedule, but long-distance service is running normally to and from the Northeast Corridor.
A faulty wheel is believed to be the cause of the NJ Transit derailment at Penn Station Monday morning. There were about 1,200 passengers on the slow-moving train at the time of the derailment and five people were treated for minor injuries.
The incident comes just two weeks after the last derailment at Penn Station, when another wheel malfunction caused an Amtrak train to sideswipe a NJ Transit train during March 24’s morning commute.
