About 800 passengers were briefly stuck aboard a Philadelphia-bound New Jersey Transit train that became disabled shortly after leaving New York City's Penn Station.

New Jersey Transit spokesman William Smith said the train was pulled back to Penn Station by a diesel train after a power issue caused it to become stuck in the north tube of the Hudson River tunnel at about 9:30 p.m. Friday. It wasn't immediately clear what caused the power problem.

Smith said the train was scheduled to leave New York for Trenton, N.J., at 9:07 p.m. He said it was pulled out of the tunnel around 11 p.m.

He said there were no reported injuries and passengers are figuring out alternative routes.

The train's final destination was Philadelphia.
